4th Annual Galician Encontro
In May 2013 Warwick Hispanic Studies hosted the 4th Annual Galician Encontro, a one day meeting that brings together Postgraduate and early career researchers and lecturers in Galician Studies.
This year's meeting was the biggest yet with 12 attendees from Warwick, Bangor, Liverpool, Oxford, Aston, Birmingham and St Andrews. We discussed research in literature, translation studies, film, cultural studies, history and exciting initiatives in Galician teaching and cultural events.
