CALL FOR LITERATURE SPEAKERS AT 2007 FIDEM CONGRESS

Lane J. Brunner, the ANA's Director of Numismatic Outreach writes:
"The American Numismatic Association is excited to host the 2007
FIDEM Congress on September 19-22, 2007 in Colorado Springs, CO.
FIDEM, the International Medal Federation, is dedicated to promoting
the art, history and technology of medals.

The programming of the 2007 FIDEM Congress will focus on educating
artists, collectors and the public about the evolution of medals
as art and stewards of history. The organizers are looking for
speakers interested in delivering a lecture on the role of literature,
 numismatic or otherwise, on the history of medals. Concurrent with
the educational programming will be an extensive medallic exhibit at
the Money Museum. If interested in speaking or for more information,
contact Lane Brunner at the American Numismatic Association
(brunner@money.org or 719-482-9872)."

Lane adds: "I donít believe in any prior FIDEM Congress there has
been a focus on literature and the medal and I thought it would be
a nice addition to the educational programming at the Congress."

[With a year's lead time for preparation, this is a wonderful
opportunity for bibliophiles and medal aficionados to plan a meeting
of the minds on the topic.  Please contact Lane with your suggestions
for speakers and topics, and offers of assistance.  Can any of our
readers provide more background on the organization and its
publications?  Below is some information taken from the group's
web site. -Editor]

"F.I.D.E.M., the International Medal Federation, was established
in 1937. Its aims are to promote and diffuse the art of medals at
 international level, to make the art known and to guarantee
recognition of its place among other arts by increasing awareness
of the art, history and technology or medals, mainly through
publications and the organisation of international events."

"F.I.D.E.M. publishes the magazine Medailles, which contains
information on F.I.D.E.M. activities and the minutes of each
congress. Members receive this free of charge.  F.I.D.E.M. members
also receive The Medal magazine, which is normally published twice
a year."
