The Department of History and Letters, Faculty of Humanities, Valahia University of Targoviste invites you to the International Symposium on Myth and Histories that will be held  on June 1-2, 2012.

In today’s globalized world, myths continue to perform a transfer between cultures, a mediation between a local and a regional culture, a “history” in progress. The historical changes and interpretations of the concept of “myth” are turning into an exercise in identity awareness as well as into a way of responding to the cultural, social and political effects of globalization.

We invite you to reflect upon the myth/history dialectics, to come together and reinterpret such concepts as fiction, verisimilitude, truth, etc., from various perspectives. 

We welcome papers that investigate the dimensions of ‘myth’ using diverse disciplinary approaches: literary, anthropological, historical, hermeneutic, etc.

We kindly ask you to submit your proposals in French, English, Italian or Spanish, indicating the title of your paper, name and institutional affiliation, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address, along with an abstract and keywords in English, by May 15, 2012, to one of the following e-mail addresses:
