  ROME — An academic conference organised by the Keats-Shelley Memorial Association and the John Murray Archive of the National Library of Scotland will take place in the Keats-Shelley House in Rome on November 5 between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.. 


  This upcoming conference both coincides with, and is inspired by the temporary exhibition that is already being held at the Keats-Shelley House, which is entitled “Lord Byron in the Hand of Mary Shelley” (29 June – 6 November 2015), curated by Giuseppe Albano (Curator, Keats-Shelley House, Rome) and David McClay (Curator, John Murray Archive, National Library of Scotland).


  The exhibition displays original and facsimile manuscripts loaned to the Keats-Shelley House by the National Library of Scotland, as well as a host of treasures from the permanent collection of the Keats-Shelley House, with many of the items from both collections being publicly displayed for the first time. 


  The registration fee is €25, which includes refreshments and a Prosecco reception.
