– A joint symposium of the ‘Euro-Linguistischer Arbeitskreis Mannheim’ and of the scholars  who identify with the aims of ‘2.000. The European Journal’ will be held at Roma Tre University on Wednesday 27 September 2017, and on Thursday 28 September at the Palazzo Comunale in Arpino. The themes of the symposium are: 1) Theodor Mommsen and Cicero. For Theodor Mommsen’s (1817-2017) bicentenary. 2) Genesis and Migration of Indo-European Languages- Research and theories on their origin. 3) The European society. History of an idea. Those who would like to take part should send an abstract of their papers, along with a short c.v., to Matthew Fox for Ciceronianism, to P. Sture Ureland for Eurolinguistics, to Vincenzo Merolle for European Studies, along with a short c.v., by the end of June. This will be the second of a number of symposia, to be held in the coming years, in Rome or at other European universities. The underlying idea from a philological point of view is that of analyzing the current development of European languages and of selecting a common vocabulary for Europe and the West. From a philosophical point of view, it will be that of promoting the ideas of tolerance and civilization proper to Western democracies. Therefore, we invite submission of papers and participation on the part of colleagues who, we are sure, will appreciate our efforts towards the advancement of learning. Unfortunately, no financial assistance will be available. Please, get in touch at the email address: Cicero_Euro_Linguistics@fastwebnet.it.
