The Finnish Literature Information Centre, in conjunction with Literature Across Frontiers (LAF) and The Mercator Centre (Wales) are organising a conference entitled 'Multicultural Europe - National Literatures Revisited' to be held in Helsinki on the 13th and 14th of June.

The conference will focus on projects which are seeking to build bridges between neighbouring cultures. The conference offers an impressive panel of speakers. Amongst these are Ales Debeljak (Slovenia), Predrag Matvejevic (Bosnia), Satu Gröndahl (Sweden), Antigone Kefelá (Greece), Rubén Palma (Chile/Denmark), and José Borghino (Australia).
