We would like to invite you to submit abstracts for an interdisciplinary conference devoted to current issues of Wales. The conference organisers are professionals from various research areas dealing with the study of aspects of the contemporary Celtic societies and plan a series of conferences on the different regions involved.
This first one will have a focus on Welsh socio-politics, national identity problems, pros and cons of the devolution process, progress and regress in Welsh culture, the fate of the Welsh language as well as Wales’ literature.
Major topics of the conference are as follows:
British, Welsh, or both? And further identity issues
Welsh and English, and further combinations – what are the future prospects of a national language in Wales?
Up or down? Cultural rebirth or crisis in Wales under devolution?
Shape changing of the literatures of Wales
Social or political or cultural? Where is the focus of Welsh devolution?
Progressing? Is Welsh devolution still evolving or already a historical process?
The impact of the Welsh diaspora
The conference language is English. Conference proceedings will be published after peer-review.
Deadline for abstract submission is March 31, 2014.
