The Elphinstone Institute will host a symposium in memory of much-missed Emeritus Professor W. F. H. Nicolaisen (1927-2016).
The conference of international scholars will be opened by the renowned folklorist, and onetime Nicolaisen student, Professor Simon Bronner, and feature a keynote from another former student, Professor Cristina Bacchilega of the University of Manoa, Hawai'i. The following three days will be devoted to three key themes in Nicolaisens's work: Names, Narrative, and the Ballad and will demonstrate his enormous international influence in the fields of Onomastics and Folklore.
