Dear Conferees,

       On behalf of the entire Lafayette College family I am pleased to welcome you to our campus for the Conference on Austrian Literature and Culture entitled "Visions and Visionaries in Literature and Film of Modern Austria."  Professor Lamb-Faffelberger of Lafayette and Professor Roethke of Dickinson College and staff members have arranged an excellent program for your edification and enjoyment.  Recent national events illustrate that now, more than ever, we must increase the positive dialog and interactions among the nations of the world.
