The LXI annual conference will be held at the University of Glasgow from 13th to 15th November 2015.
This year’s conference will take place at the University of Glasgow. We encourage members and nonmembers 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.
Glasgow is a vibrant and dynamic city which offers a wide range of events, activities and places to visit.

Recently voted the ‘friendliest city in the world’ in a Rough Guides poll, you can expect a very warm
welcome, world-class architecture, breath-taking scenery and one of the top places to shop in the UK. For more information please refer to the following websites: https://peoplemakeglasgow.com/;

The city is served by three international airports (Glasgow, Prestwick and Edinburgh) and it is very well
connected by train from across the UK (https://peoplemakeglasgow.com/visiting/getting-here). Glasgow’s city centre is remarkably compact and easy to get around. For information on maps, see:
The city offers a wide range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. For anyone wishing to book accommodation well in advance, there are good deals to be had on city centre hotels via the
usual online sites. If you intend to do this we would recommend either a central or West End hotel close to a subway stop: http://www.spt.co.uk/subway/.
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 Glasgow are Jordi Cornellà-Detrell and Kathryn Crameri: Jordi.cornella@glasgow.ac.uk; Kathryn.crameri@glasgow.ac.uk. Please email us if you have any questions or suggestions.
You are invited to offer a paper of 20 minutes’ duration at the LXI Anglo-Catalan Society Conference. The paper may treat ANY ASPECT of Catalan culture (linguistic, historical, literary, sociological, political, musical, etc.) relating to all areas where Catalan is spoken.
Please send proposals (affiliation, title and 200-word abstract) by e-mail to the Society’s Secretary, Dr Anna Vives, by 1st July 2015. The e-mail address is anna.vives@le.ac.uk
We hope to prepare a provisional programme by 15th July 2015 and will notify all applicants as to whether their proposals have been accepted or not by this date.
