Meeting Description:

Boundaries define who we are and who we are not. They unite and divide us. They exist within us, and are external to us. Some are even created by us. Boundaries take on many forms - linguistic, literary, and cultural; they are an integral part of human life. 

This year's conference, contemplating the theme of boundaries within the linguistic diversity in Wales and other Welsh speaking areas, aims to provide a forum for those interested in discussing these issues. Following on from the success of last year's conference, this year's event will once again be a symposium dealing with linguistics, history, literary studies, and other areas relevant for language diversity in Welsh-speaking areas. The forum is open to researchers interested in translation studies, media studies, arts, and anthropology insofar as they are working on topics connected with the language diversity of Wales.

We welcome participants dealing with diversity in Welsh, English or any other languages that are or have been used in Wales (e.g. French, Latin, Flemish, Polish, Romani, Somali, sign language, etc.) and areas where Welsh is spoken (e.g. Patagonia, and regions of Britain other than Wales). Within the field of literary studies, possible topics include: the use of Welsh in English-medium literature, the use of English in Welsh-medium literature, and the use of dialects in Welsh literature.

Recent history has seen a blurring of the traditional boundaries of the linguistic, literary, cultural, and political lives of Wales; we invite you to take part in the discussion, exploration, and possible reshaping of these once firm concepts. �

The registration fee will be c. �25 (to be confirmed).
