BYU sponsors first regional European Scholars Consortium Oct. 28-29.

More than 30 scholars from various disciplines at universities and colleges throughout the Rocky Mountain area will share their research during the first annual Rocky Mountain European Scholars Consortium, "Defining Europe: Borders, Identities, Cultures," on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 28-29 at the Brigham Young University Conference Center.

The conference aims to provide a challenging forum for the examination and evaluation of the shifting shape and meaning of Europe.

A panel discussion, "Current and Future BYU Projects in Herculaneum and the Bay of Naples," led by Roger T. Macfarlane, associate professor of classics at BYU, will open the conference.

Broad topics to be covered by individual scholars are "Before Nationalities," "Arts and Languages," "20th Century Nationalism/Memory" and "The New Europe."

Registration is required. Please see the Web site for registration details.
