434341274 10161518046068586 6897041533015429031 nНа 5 април 2024 г. (петък) от 11.00 ч. в сградата на Института за балканистика с Център по тракология при Българската академия на науките (ул. „Московска“ № 45) ще се проведе разговор с Андрея Расучану и Лора Ненковска на тема „Литература и памет“.

Андрея Расучану е писателка, авторка на книги с литературна критика и редакторка. „Непозната форма на живот“ (2018), е дебютният ѝ роман, удостоен с наградата за най-добра прозаична книга на списание Атенеу (2019), наградата за писател на месец януари на Съюза на румънските писатели (2019) и редица престижни номинации. Вторият ѝ роман, „Вятърът, духът, дъхът“ (2020), също е преведен на български. Расучану публикува разкази в различни сборници, както и няколко монографии в областта на литературната география и геокритиката, като във фокуса на интересите ѝ нерядко е Букурещ и неговата литературна история.

Родена разказвачка, надарена с онази сетивност, която ѝ позволява да улавя невидимите нишки, изграждащи света, който обитаваме, Андрея Расучано опитомява историята, стихийността на природата и географските пространства, като ги подрежда в разкази – карти на човешките съдби. Силата ѝ да работи пластично с образите, богатият ѝ език и бароковият ѝ стил на писане я превръщат един от най-интересните съвременни гласове в румънската литература. 

Лора Ненковска е филолог с докторска степен от Софийския университет „Св. Климент Охридски“. Преводачка на художествена литература и преподавателка по румънски език, средновековна и съвременна румънска литература в СУ „Св. Климент Охридски“. Изключително любопитна читателка, която се опитва да не изпусне пулса на случващото се в румънската литература. Чувствителен преводач с фин усет за езика. Сред авторите, които е превела на български език, са Андрея Расучану, Алина Нелега, Макс Блехер, Мирча Елиаде, Дан Лунгу, Петру Чимпоешу, Йоан Ес. Поп, Богдан-Александру Станеску, Симона Попеску.

IMG 35x45At the end of last week, Prof. D. Sc. Alexandre Kostov, Corresponding Member of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, was awarded the Badge of Honor of the Municipality of Montana. The highest award of the municipality will be presented to him on the city's feast - Holy Spirit, by virtue of the decision of the Municipal Council - Montana.

With the honors of the Municipality of Montana, individuals and institutions with outstanding services to the city are recognized. In addition to the impressive academic achievements of Prof. Kostov, the reason for the award is also the cooperation initiated by him between the local government and cultural institutions with the Institute of Balkan Studies & Centre of Tracology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IBSCT-BAS), of which he was the director in the period 2010-2018. As a result of the partnership numerous events were held in Montana: conferences, seminars, lectures. A number of collections and scholarly publications have been published.

In 2018, on the proposition of Prof. D.Sc. Kostov, a branch of the IBSCT-BAS was established in Montana. This deepened the cooperation with the municipality, the Regional History Museum and the State Archives in Montana. Under his scientific guidance, 4 collections dedicated to the past and present of the Bulgarian northwest were published. Among them is the special edition dedicated to the 130th anniversary of the announcement of the city of Montana. The fifth edition of the series is in print. A scholarly conference under the leadership of Prof. D.Sc. Alexandre Kostov is included in the program for the city's feast.
