"Hans Christian Andersen in Portugal: Following the Trail of The Writer in the Light of the Romantic Travelogue as a Genre and Literary Tourism as a Phenomenon

His reputation, his travels and the works which resulted from them, will be honoured through presentations and discussions during this International Conference on Hans Christian Andersen and his excursions in the genre of the romantic travelogue, which will also cover Literary Tourism, ie. following the trail of a famous writer like Andersen from a more theoretical perspective.

The idea for this conference was born in 2015, when Moonluza's Director, Adriana Jurczyk Duarte met a delegation from the Hans christian Andersen Center at a Seminar in Portugal, and they decided to bring the memory of the Danish writer and his work back to this beautiful country in Southern Europe. The Conference will gather together Andersen scholars and aficionados from all over the world for a three-day meeting filled with wonderful presentations and unique moments, discovering Hans Christian Andersen's trail in Portugal and other parts of Europe, as well as reflecting on his writings about these travels and the act of following these trails as a literary tourist. One full day will be devoted to Andersen's 1866 visit in Portugal.

The conference has institutional support and patronage of the Municipality of Sintra, the Institute for Study and Tradition of Nova University of Lisbon, National Centre of Culture, the Centre for Intercultural Studies, Polytechnic University of Porto, the Embassy of Denmark to Portugal and Family Vineyards Cortes de Cima."
