CALL FOR PAPERS – 15th INTERNATIONAL STUDENT BYRON CONFERENCE

23-28 MAY 2022 , Messolonghi Greece

The Messolonghi Byron Society –Messolonghi Byron Research Center

When originally planned, during the lead-in to the bicentennial commemorations of the Greek War of Independence, the International Student Byron Conference aimed to center on Byron’s involvement in Philhellenism and the Greek Revolution, to which he devoted his fortune and the last year of his life.  But the coronavirus pandemic intervened, and the conference was postponed. Now its academic committee is pleased to announce a rescheduling for May 2022. All participants whose abstracts had previously been accepted and who have indicated their interest in attending the rescheduled event will be eligible to present in May 2022.

Please send abstract proposals by 28 February 2022 to Professor Roderick Beaton (rod.beaton@kcl.ac.uk), Professor Peter Graham (pegraham@vt.edu) and Professor Maria Schoina (schoina@enl.auth.gr) with a copy to Mrs. Rodanthi-Rosa Florou (byronlib@gmail.com).
