Dear colleagues and members of National Committees of the AIEB,
I am pleased to write to you to announce the forthcoming first issue of our newly-designed AIEB newsletter, Byzantine News!
We would now ask members of the National Committees to forward the announcement to all the members in their own national association, as well as to any other interested parties, through the existing channels (i.e. your local mailing lists, etc.). Please encourage all your members to subscribe to the newsletter through the website. In particular, we would encourage you and your members to submit news to the editors!
You can access the submission form here: http://aiebnet.gr/newsletter/
For your information, here is the Mission Statement for Byzantine News:
The main aim of the AIEB Newsletter “Byzantine News” is to facilitate information exchange among Byzantine scholars worldwide. It hopes to fulfil this aim by functioning as an information hub, i.e. by receiving and distributing news and information about activities and events that may be of interest to Byzantine scholars throughout the world. In particular, it seeks to collect and distribute calls for papers; announcements of forthcoming congresses, conferences and similar events (presentations of volumes, seminars, public lectures, etc.); and news about exhibitions and museum events. The Newsletter does not publish announcements of recent publications. A special section entitled “Opportunities” lists job postings, scholarships, and other funding opportunities for scholars at all levels, junior through senior. The Newsletter is published by the AIEB. Collection and distribution of information is carried out by the editorial team approved by the Bureau of the AIEB and on its behalf. The coordination of the editorial team is carried out by the coordinators of the Development Commission of the AIEB.
We welcome submissions from National Committees of Byzantine Studies, universities, scholarly and research institutions, museums, libraries, galleries, as well as individual scholars at any stages of their careers as well as members of the general public interested in scholarly research on Byzantium and its heritage. The editorial team of the Newsletter reserves the right to choose what to publish, particularly when submissions are deemed or may be deemed to contravene the Mission Statement of the Newsletter.
When you access the Newsletter page, you will find a drop-down menu bar below the image – just click on the tab you need to enter the pages you want.
I would like to take this opportunity, on your behalf and on behalf of the Bureau, to thank the members of our Development Commission who have spearheaded this initiative and designed the Newsletter, and who will also serve as its editors, Dr Sergei Mariev and Dr Alessandra Bucossi; together with our webmaster, Mr Panagiotis Kanelatos, who has been responsible for the technical design and implementation of the Newsletter as well as the recent upgrade to our webpages.
I look forward to reading your news in the Newsletter in due course!
pp. Prof. A. Markopoulos (Secretary) and Prof. B. Caseau (Treasurer)
