Frammenti e dintorni - Fragmente im Kontext - 07-08-09/11/2019, Merano (Italy)



The concept of the conference, expressed by the Italian word "dintorni", is manifold: we aim at investigating not only the fragments themselves, but also the contexts in which they are quoted, the reasons why they are quoted, and their relationship with other text that we have as a whole.
