THE BIBLICAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL SOCIETY has begun a new paid-subscription lecture series called BASONOVA. They have announced three lectures so far:

BASONOVA–The First Diasporas: Egypt and Babylonia (3 June, Gary Rendsburg)

BASONOVA–Septuagint, Synagogue, and Symbiosis: The Jews of Hellenistic Egypt (10 June, Gary Rendsburg)

They also mention a third lecture by Steven Tuck on "Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Aftermath of Vesuvius" on 24 June, but it doesn't yet have its own page. Scroll down at either of the links above. For more on Steven Tuck's work, see there and here and links.
