European Jules Verne Convention 2020
The Phantastische Bibliothek Wetzlar (Wetzlar Library of the Fantastic) together with the Jules Verne Club Germany invites the European Jules Verne societies and the interested public to an international Jules Verne Convention: The convention will be both a multilingual literary conference and an opportunity to visit Wetzlar’s places of interest.
The Wetzlar Library of the Fantastic holds the largest collection of fantastic literature in Europe. After the acquisition of a huge specialized collection of books and other items last year, the Library of the Fantastic is the only German library that holds all German editions of the works of Jules Verne. Additionally, in cooperation with the German Jules Verne Club, the Library is assembling an archive of secondary sources about Jules Verne and his work.
Jules Verne enthusiasts are kindly asked to hand in proposals for conference papers: presentations should not be longer than 20 minutes and presented either in English or French. Translations of the abstracts will be provided in all languages of the participating Jules Verne societies.
Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words, plus 50 word bios by 5th January 2020 to registration[at]phantastik.eu.
