The Organizing Committee of the "2nd International Conference on Byzantine Studies and Eastern Middle Ages" has decided to postpone the event to April 2021, as a consequence of the emergency state caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision was taken due to the uncertainties that we are facing in the next months in Brazil and across the world. More specific dates will be announced in due time. We'll contact everyone who sent their communications until the present time. We'll continue receiving communication submissions on the next months. Please, follow the health authorities' recommendations on prophylactic measures regarding the coronavirus and take care.

The 2nd International Conference on Byzantine Studies and Eastern Middle Ages is an academic event aiming to bring together researchers of Byzantine and Eastern Medieval Studies. These scholars are encouraged to present their work and discuss new approaches to collaborate in the expansion of these contexts in Brazil. Continuing the successful first edition, this year's event becomes international. In this sense, the Conference will contribute to the dialogue between national and international researchers at different levels, whether they are doctors, masters or undergrads. Papers on different themes addressing East Medieval societies are encouraged, as well as cross-cutting themes that highlight the connections of other geographic regions with the East.
IMPORTANCE OF THE CONFERENCE
This event is part of joint initiatives of the Laboratório de Estudos Medievais (LEME) and the Núcleo de Estudos Bizantinos e Conexões Mediterrânicas (NEB/UNIFESP-UFFS). The latter was created after the first edition of the event. NEB aims to think about an expanded Middle Ages, beyond Western frontiers. That perspective requires debate among researchers working on other, non-Westen Middle Ages. Without such debate, knowledge becomes limited.
The event will be held at the School of Philosophy, Languages and Human Sciences of the Federal University of São Paulo (EFLCH/UNIFESP), located at Estrada do Caminho Velho, 333. Jardim Nova Cidade, Guarulhos-SP.
