DVDs under making
Sir Michael B. Hughes, our distinguished Welsh member, returns to Romania for 3 new documentaries: one - on the TSD symposium; another - on the paranormal events in the Hoia-Baciu wood (Transylvania); yet another - on the history, traditions and lot of the gypsies in Romania and not only (“the faithful servants of the Count”).
2007 TSD colloquium
At the suggestion of Baroness Elizabeth Miller, the theme of the 2007 (May 18-20) colloquium will be “Dracula: blurring the boundaries between Reality and Fiction” - which should attract the contributions of a wide variety of scholars, writers, art critics. The theme serves at understanding the battle between Reality and Virtuality, Sense and Non-sense, ourselves.
Archives lost/ retrieved
Some of the TSD archives for the years 2004 2005 were lost to flood. Should any of our members stopped receiving our newsbulletin, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to resume contact. It is an obvious Van Helsing plot to disrupt the workings of the Count, isn’t it.
Next year, please
Although informed that the tenth student may belong to the devil, as his due, the Scholomance school of August has been booked full (two series of 10 students each - as in www.transylvaniatour.com, under “Dracula tours”) . Please understand that we cannot make new rules and supplement the class. To enlist, please apply again, earlier in 2007 (for the same month).
