The Bulgarian Studies Association of North America was
founded in 1971 by a group of American and Canadian scholars
concerned with Bulgarian subjects. Its purpose is to encourage
academic investigation of Bulgaria, exchange information, and
develop relations with Bulgarian scholars. The BSA organized the
first joint meeting of North American and Bulgarian scholars at
Madison, Wisconsin in 1973. This was followed by meetings in
Varna, Boston, Smolyan and, most recently, Pittsburgh (May,
1994.) The Association also holds an annual meeting in
conjunction with the convention of the American Association
for the Advancement of Slavic Studies (AAASS).
The BSA publishes a newsletter, appearing about four times
each year, with information on the activities of the organization
and its individual members. Membership is open to anyone with an
interest in Bulgarian studies. Dues are $15.00 per year.
Requests for membership should be sent to its secretary: Martha
Forsyth, 51 Davis Avenue, West Newton, MA 02165-1925.
The current president of the BSA is Prof. Katia McClain
Its vice-president is Prof. Grace Fielder
