Why join SPBS?

By joining the Society for the Promotion of Byzantine Studies, you will become part of a dynamic group of people (both professional and lay) who actively support the field of Byzantine Studies both in the UK and abroad.

An annual Spring Symposium offers the chance to meet others and to exchange ideas, whilst various regional events provide further opportunities for social contact and scholarly exchange.

As a member of the Society, you will have a chance to inform others of your current research and publications in the Bulletin of British Byzantine Studies, which is published annually in March. All members receive the Society’s Autumn Newsletter and the Bulletin, as well as occasional email updates informing them of Society events and activities. Members also benefit from reduced registration fees for the Spring Symposium and from occasional third-party offers to members, such as discounted subscription to Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies (BMGS).

The Society is a registered charity and relies upon members’ subscriptions to fund its activities. These include the provision of a number of small grants and travel bursaries which are allocated to deserving students and other individuals engaged in Byzantine research. Society members are eligible to apply for these grants.

Membership is open to all who support the aims of the society and want to join our community of Byzantinists. No academic affiliation or enrolment is required.

You can join the Society either online or offline.
