Two Conferences

Two Conferences have recently published their programme of lectures.

The Association for Welsh Writing in English is proud to be collaborating with the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies in organizing its annual conference in 2011 on the subject of ‘Wales and Revolution’.

The Celts in the Americas conference will be held 29 June – 2 July, 2011 at Saint Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, hosted by the Celtic Studies Department of St FX and the Centre for Cape Breton Studies at Cape Breton University. The Celts in the Americas conference will offer a unique opportunity to share scholarship about the history, culture, and literature of Celtic-speaking peoples in North and South America: it will be the first academic conference devoted to this theme, with presentations about aspects of the experiences and literatures of the communities speaking Breton, Cornish, Irish Gaelic, Manx Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, or Welsh in the Americas. One day of the conference will be devoted to examining the interactions between Celtic peoples and non-Celtic peoples in the Americas, with a special emphasis on indigenous peoples and peoples of African descent. CREW’s director Daniel Williams will be giving a keynote lecture at the conference, made possible by a British Academy Overseas Conference Award.
