Scientific Encounters in the North

2nd Scientific Encounters in the North with the basic topic of 'Cultural Convergence: Media as Cultural Systems', are sequences of scientific encounters held every two years at the University North. In 2016 (21 and 22 October) the first international scientific conference was organized in the honour of 80th birthday of the academician Milivoj Solar, under the title ‘Language of Literature, Science and Media’. About sixty national and international exhibitors (literary theorists, historians, theatrologists, philosophers, sociologists, ethnologists, media researchers, educational experts, etc.) participated in the work of the first Scientific Encounters in the North in the context of very different, inspirational and innovative themes. In an effort to continue this practice, and to achieve that the north-western region becomes a meeting place for scientists and a nursery garden of new topics in different science fields, the 2nd Scientific Encounters represent a very logical sequence.
