From the 2nd to the 7th of September 2012 the University of Bologna will
organize a new conference on inter-European themes:
and South: European Literary and Artistic Connections
The conference, which will cover four days of
lectures and one day dedicated to an excursion, will take place at the
four-star Hotel National (see separate sheet) in Rimini, located on the seaside
South-East of Bologna, and easily reached by train from this city.
Conference languages are English, German,
French, Spanish and Italian. No abstract is required, but prepare a one-page
handout in English to be distributed during the conference (particularly useful
in the case of papers presented in another language than English). Scholarly
board: Professors Ole Karlsen (Hamar), Ingeborg Kongslien (Oslo), Bjørn Tysdahl
(Oslo), VigdisYstad (Oslo).
The conference fee (30 Euros for active
participants, and 15 for others) should be paid to the secretaries on arrival
at the hotel. There will be further information about the Wednesday excursion
in our next letters. We expect the price of the journey (by bus) to be about 35
Euros and 35/40 Euros for lunch in a carefully chosen restaurant. Hotel prices
in Rimini and a booking form can be found in the attached information from
Flights to and from Bologna are frequent from
various European airports. To Rimini there are direct flights from London,
Copenhagen and Munich (some of them run by low-cost airlines). Useful websites:
