Revised Call for Papers: The 25th International Symposium on Onomastics and Literature, Cagliari, Italy, October 2021

The Society “Onomastica & Letteratura” (O&L) invites you to participate at the Twenty-Fifth International Symposium on Onomastics and Literature (Cagliari,  October 2021). Because of the current global COVID-19 pandemic, they have decided to postpone the O&L Conference to October 2021. The conference will be held in Cagliari as planned and the topics tackled will be the same.

Themes that can be addressed include:

  • Inadequate, alienating insulating or insulting names
  • Proper names in the titles of literary works
  • Names in dedications
  • Methodological issues
  • Regional literary onomastics (Sardinia: the region hosting the conference)

Abstract proposals (350 words) should be sent as an email attachment to Dr. Donatella Bremer <> along with a short biosketch (100 words). Considering that many library locations are likely to be still closed to public access in the upcoming months, the deadline for sending your contribution is February 28, 2021.

Meanwhile, research activity will go on. Therefore, we would like to invite you to participate in the upcoming issue of our journal il Nome nel testo, XXII (2021). This issue has no specific theme, so they welcome articles presenting any topic that falls within Literary Onomastics.

If you wish to submit your paper to the Editorial Board of the journal, il Nome nel testoplease send it to Donatella Bremer (
