I am invited to give a talk at a conference organized in Norway by the Lying Pen of Scribes project.

The workshop will take place on Monday, 22 February 2021, 13:00–18:00 CET. We were supposed to meet at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, in Gjøvik, but the pandemic has led the organizers to move the conference online.

Registration is mandatory and is due 18 February 2021 through the following link: https://nettskjema.no/a/185097#/page/1.
