The LBI is a proud member of the new scientific research network “Literatures without Borders. A Historical-Comparative Study of Premodern Literary Transnationality”, founded by RELICS (Ghent University). The network consists of 16 partners from across Europe and aims to develop a framework that allows for a better understanding of transnationality as reflected in Latin, Byzantine Greek, Arabic and Hebrew-Yiddish-Ladino literatures. We look forward to contributing to this synergy through the co-organistion of conferences, workshops and publication projects. More information can be found on the website of RELICS.
