Διεθνές Συνέδριο Βύρωνα

Ο Σύνδεσμος Μπάϊρον και το Βασιλικό Κολέγιο Λονδίνου οργανώνουν και παρουσιάζουν από κοινού το 39ο Διεθνές Συνέδριο Μπάϊρον, με θέμα: «Βύρωνας: Η ποίηση της πολιτικής και η πολιτική της ποίησης»!

Το Συνέδριο θα λάβει χώρα στο κεντρικό κτήριο του Βασιλικού Κολεγίου (Kings College London, Strand Campus), στην καρδιά του Λονδίνου, από την 1η  έως την 6η Ιουλίου 2013.

This conference will examine Byron’s engagement with politics in the widest sense: as a poet, as a member of the House of Lords, as a commentator on his time, and latterly as a would-be revolutionary.
