The LXIV Anglo-Catalan Society annual conference will be held at the University of Bristol from 9th to 11th November 2018.
The Anglo-Catalan Society encourages members and non-members alike to come to the conference and take advantage of this excellent opportunity to hear stimulating papers, engage in lively discussion and enjoy meeting with colleagues and friends. The University has a long tradition of Catalan Studies dating back more than 50 years and is expanding its teaching programme both with the degrees of the School of Modern Languages and across the University as a whole.
Bristol is the largest city in the southwest with a population of just under half a million. It is a dynamic city, known for its creative media, electronics and aerospace industries, the birthplace of Aardman Studios’ Wallace and Gromit as well as graffiti artist Banksy. With lots of green spaces, Georgian and Victorian architecture and a regenerated harbourside with cafés, galleries and museums, in 2017 it was named the ‘best place to live in Britain’.
Further details about the conference fees, speakers, precise venues and how to book will be published on the Association’s web site in due course.
