Practical Information


The seminar takes place in Mødelokale 6 which is a small, but cosy, meeting room at the Department of History. Accordingly there is only room for a very limited number of listeners.

Admittance to the seminar can only occur upon prior registration with the organiser! If you wish attend, please write Thomas Heebøll-Holm at the latest 20 september.


The conference hotels are Hotel Plaza, Østre Stationsvej 32, 5000 Odense C and CabInn Odense, Østre Stationsvej 7-9, 5000 Odense C

Both of the hotels within walking distance of the Odense train station.

The conference venue is on the main University of Southern Denmark campus, which is southeast of the city centre. More information will follow on the exact conference room later.
