Conference Proceedings 2010

1. Here there are the final summary and the abstracts of Dying and Death Conference Proceedings 2010:

I hope in few days I can announce you that these conference proceedings are indexed in CEEOL. The indexing process takes longer than I though.
Also I hope that in three weeks I start to send the copies of conference proceedings to the contributors. Remember: the conference proceedings are edited as special issues of Annales Universitatis Apulensis Series Historica (scientific annual published by the History Department of the University of Alba Iulia starting since 1997).
Secondly, please keep in your mind these conference proceedings are dedicated to the memory of our beloved colleague and friend Mariana Nitu (1980-2011). Mariana Nitu was one of the conference participants 2010 but first and foremost she was our dear friend and a very special person.
You can see above the main cover of this book. A little detail here: the conference proceedings 2010 have 630 pages and 44 papers!

1. Proceedings of Dying and Death in 18th-21st Century Europe, International Conference, third edition, Alba Iulia, Romania, 3-5 of September 2010 must be indexed in CEEOL until 28th of February 2011. So, I'm hardly work on these. There will be about 45 papers in the conference proceedings. I will put very soon here the contents and the abstracts.

2. I think we will organize the fourth edition of Dying and Death in 18-21st century Europe, International Conference beetwen 29 September and October The First 2011. I hope at the end of next week I will send out the call for papers. There will be some good changes with this conference. We try to keep this conference for free, namely not requiring money for registration and accomodation for the possible participants. We cannot earlier organize this edition of the conference because it would be too close by DDD10.
