Literature and Change in Europe (LACE) is a network of seven universities: Aarhus University (Denmark), University of Bologna (Italy), University of Granada (Spain), University of Groningen (the Netherlands), KU Leuven (Belgium), University of Lisboa (Portugal), and University of Tartu (Estonia). The LACE Winter School is meant to bring together students, scholars and professionals with an interest in narrative and storytelling.
This year's theme was partly chosen to celebrate the work of professor Liesbeth Korthals Altes who is retiring on 31 January 2019. Her farewell lectutre, Caleidoscopes: Art, Narrative, and Values, will be part of the Winter School. This makes the Winter School not only professionally, but also personally relevant for me, as professor Korthals Altes was my PhD supervisor, and I have worked with her in one capacity or another for almost 20 years now.
More information on the LACE Winter School can be found here.
