>> 05.05.2004-08.05.2004, Craiova, Romania
>> Deadline: 01.12.2003
>>
>> It is our great pleasure to let you know that, from 05 to 08 May 2004,
>> The Centre for Studies in Folklife and Traditional Culture of the
>> County
>> of Dolj, an academic institute for studies in ethnology and
>> anthropology, will organise in Craiova, Romania the international
>> seminar "Death and Orient/La mort et l'Orient". Our seminar's aim is
>> to
>> create a debate framework for academics both from Romania and from
>> abroad that are concerned with such a complex topic as death and its
>> representations.
>>
>> If in Western Europe death was the subject of some very interesting
>> academic debates and papers, despite of a constant interest shown to
>> this research topic by the scholars in the Eastern Europe, the results
>> of the research work in this part of the continent are far from being
>> known enough to the international academic community. The variety of
>> documentation sources and the persistence of some funeral rituals and
>> usage in this area which are far from having eroded their significance
>> entitle the idea of constructing a research field at least as
>> interesting as that one in the Western Europe. Only the comparative
>> evaluation of the research results will offer a general view of the
>> dialogue the European societies developed with the idea of death, this
>> process specific features and joint aspects.
>>
>> Our intention is that the participants in the seminar (ethnologists,
>> anthropologists, historians, philologists, art historians etc.) should
>> discuss the results of their research work stressing on: sources of
>> their research, methodological aspects of their work, the usefulness
>> of
>> a multi-disciplinary approach of this field. Papers will be given in
>> English or French and they are not to exceed 20 minutes of time. In
>> order to improve communication we are going to edit and publish the
>> volume of the seminar in advance, so that each participant should have
>> it in its conference portfolio. That is why the paper to be presented
>> during the conference, the in extenso copy, should be submitted to our
>> editorial board by February 28th, 2004.
>>
>> The submitters should send the papers to the publisher at the
>> following
>> address:
>>
>> Mihai Fifor, manager
>> Nicolae Mihai, editor in chief
>> Centrul Creatiei Populare Dolj (The Centre for Studies in Folklife and
>> Traditional Culture of the County of Dolj)
>> 28 Alexandru Macedonski Street
>> 1100 Craiova-Romania
>>
>> The organisers will cover all the accommodation expenses.
>>
>> The deadline for registration and sending the tentative title of your
>> paper is December 1st 2003.
>>
>>
>> Looking forward to hearing from you,
>> Truly yours,
>>
