Annual Conferences and Events

LXIV Anglo-Catalan Society Annual Conference

The LXIV annual conference will be held at the University of Bristol from 9th to 11th November 2018.

We encourage 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’. For more information on the city see this link and for local events please refer to the following website.

The city is served by an international airport (Bristol Airport) and is also very well connected by train from across the UK (http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/). For information on how to get here and a link to maps see http://www.bristol.ac.uk/maps/directions/. The city offers a wide range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets.

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. Your local contacts at Bristol are Sally-Ann Kitts (s-a.kitts@bristol.ac.uk) and James Hawkey (james.hawkey@bristol.ac.uk). Please email us if you have any questions or suggestions. We look forward to welcoming you.
