Annual Conferences and Events

LXIII Anglo-Catalan Society Annual Conference

The LXIII annual conference will be held at the University of Birmingham from 10th to 12th November 2017.

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 in the teaching of Catalan and in recent years has been gradually building up local and international collaborations and networks in relation to Catalan culture.
