Writing Wales: 1500-1800

National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, 3-4 July 2008

This interdisciplinary conference explores representations of Wales in historical and literary texts written in Welsh or English between 1500 and 1800. It provides unprecedented opportunity for scholars across disciplines and conventional period demarcations to engage in a discussion of the different ways Wales was ‘written’ in the early modern, eighteenth-century, and early Romantic periods. Confirmed keynote speakers are Geraint H. Jenkins, M. Wynn Thomas, and Jane Aaron.

There is still time to register for the conference. Registration forms can be downloaded, together with the final conference programme, at www.imems.ac.uk/writingwales.php or www.aber.ac.uk/english
