The 6th International Conference of Nordic and Baltic Studies in Romania will be held at Ovidius University of Constanta, one of the most beautiful and culturally rich cities on the Black Sea coast. The university bears the name of the Roman poet Publius Ovidius Naso, who lived the last years of his life in Tomis, a former Greek colony later to become the city of Constanta. The university is an institution in the service of regional community and has a profound international impact in the Black Sea area and beyond. Some of the values that guide the university are inspired by the life and works of Ovid, who proved creative freedom and desire to leave a permanent and unique cultural trace, capable of enduring the passage of time.
The conference is organized by the Romanian Association for Baltic and Nordic Studies in cooperation with the International Summer School of the University of Oslo, Norway and the Faculty of History and Political Sciences of Ovidius University of Constanta, Romania and in partnership with the Nordic and Baltic embassies and consulates in Romania. The conference is sponsored through the EEA and Norway Grants 2009-2014 within the Fund for Bilateral Relations at National Level.
The meeting will focus on historical memory, the politics of memory and cultural identity in Romania, Scandinavia and Black Sea Region seen in comparison, but is open to contributions from other areas of interconnection between Romania and the Black Sea region, and Scandinavia and Baltic Sea Region such as energy, geography and environment, the role of women in shaping the society, economics and trade, international relations and political science etc.
Many of the leading international figures in Scandinavian, Baltic and Black Sea studies will be attending this meeting and we strongly stimulate the formation of new networks of cooperation as well as re-invigorating existing collaborations. The conference will include a roundtable on historical memory, the politics of memory and cultural identity: Romania, Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea Region in comparison as well as other meaningful cultural and social events.
In order to facilitate your participation at our meeting in Constanta, the participation fee is waved for all speakers and attendees.
The conference dates are May 22-23, 2015 and we cordially invite you to the beautiful ancient colony of Tomis and today's culturally rich city of Constanta to enjoy a most inspiring meeting of our Nordic, Baltic and Black sea community.
