AHGBI Annual Conference 2022 – Hybrid Format – hosted by the Institute of Modern Languages Research (IMLR), 11-13 April 2022

Call for papers & panels

Given current uncertainties surrounding travelling and gatherings due to Covid-19, the Association of Hispanists of Great Britain and Ireland (AHGBI), in conjunction with the local conference organising team at the Institute of Modern Languages Research (IMLR), has made the decision to hold a hybrid conference in 2022. It is expected that our 2022 Annual Conference will comprise of 1 or 2 face-to-face days, with the rest of the conference online.

The conference, which will be hosted by the Institute of Modern Languages Research (IMLR), School of Advanced Study, University of London, will take place from Monday 11th to Wednesday 13th April 2022. All AHGBI members, especially Lusitanists, PGRs and ECAs, are warmly invited to propose the delivery of a paper and/or the organisation of a panel. The AHGBI actively encourages proposals for panels that involve a mixture of career stages, and is keen to encourage within the same panel the participation of retired members of the Association, established scholars in the field, and ECA/PGR speakers. We also welcome other formats, and we encourage members to get in touch with the Conference Secretary with further ideas (please contact Dr Tara Plunkett directly: tara.plunkett@ucd.ie).

Please read the AHGBI2022-IMLR-CallforPapers carefully. Papers and panels can be submitted via the links in the left-hand menu.

Deadline: Friday 5th November 2021.
