Borders and Crossings: International and multidisciplinary Conference on Travel Writing

13-16 September 2018, National Park Brijuni

Dobrodošli and welcome to the website of the 2018 Borders and Crossings Conference, the regular meeting of all scholars interested in questions of travel, travel writing and tourism. The main organizer of the event this year is Dr. Nataša Urošević of the Faculty of Interdisciplinary, Italian and Cultural Studies at Juraj Dobrila University of Pula (Croatia).

The conference will be held on the Brijuni Islands near Pula, a city with ancient origins: a town of fugitives, the mythical refuge of the Argonauts, which has been for centuries a perfect stopping point for boats sailing along the eastern coast of the Adriatic from Venice and Trieste to Dalmatia and the Levant. Its great abundance of monuments and the beauty of its bays have often been described in European travel books. Join us and explore one of the most interesting historic cities in Europe and its turbulent history, as well as the nearby Brijuni Islands, a national park and one of the first modern tourist destinations on the Adriatic.

Borders und Crossings: Internationale und multidisziplinäre Konferenz zum Thema Reiseliteratur

Ivica Petrinić

Das ist unsere Einladung für Wissenschaftler mit Schwerpunkt Reise, Reiseliteratur und Tourismus für die Reihe des Jahres  2018 „Borders and Crossings Conferences“. Die Konferenz findet in Pula statt, einer Stadt mit einer langen Geschichte: eine Stadt der Flüchtlinge, der mythologischen Zuflucht der Argonauten, die jahrhundertelang ein perfekter Stop für Segler war, die entlang der östlichen Küste der Adria von Venedig und Triest nach Dalmatien und in die Levante unterwegs waren. Die Stadt mit ihrer großen Zahl an Denkmälern und der Schönheit ihrer Buchten wurde oft in europäischen Reiseführern beschrieben. Machen Sie mit und erkunden Sie eine der interessantesten historischen Städte in Europa und ihre bewegte Geschichte, wie auch die nahe liegenden Inseln Brioni, ein Nationalpark und eine der ersten modernen Tourismusdestinationen in der Adria.
