Convocatòria de comunicacions – LXVI ANGLO-CATALAN SOCIETY ANNUAL CONFERENCE
The LXVI annual conference will be held at the University of St Andrews from 23 to 25 October 2020
We encourage members and non-members 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.
St Andrews provides a unique location for a very special university. Wherever you walk, you are reminded of its rich and colourful history with buildings both ancient and modern. Founded in the 15th century, St Andrews is Scotland’s first university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world.

SCHOLARSHIPS TO ATTEND THE ANGLO-CATALAN SOCIETY ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Given the popularity and success of recent scholarships, we have decided to continue to divide the Anglo-Catalan Society Scholarship into a limited number of awards to encourage students interested in Catalan culture to attend the Anglo-Catalan Society Conference.
Applicants will normally be current or recent students from British or Irish universities who would like to maintain and/or develop knowledge and understanding of Catalan culture, but it is also open to postgraduate students of other universities, provided that they are currently doing research in the field of Catalan Studies.
The award will comprise: membership of the Anglo-Catalan Society for one year (until January 2022), and a contribution towards the cost of conference and travel expenses. Payments will be made on production of bills and receipts further to the submission of a report (see point 6)
Each applicant should provide the following information: Curriculum Vitae; one academic reference by either a member of their department or by a Catalan lector; a signed declaration to the effect that the applicant will attend the full conference and that s/he will take responsibility for the rest of the funding.
Successful candidates will be expected to submit a report on the Conference to Pedro Fernàndez before 31st December 2020. Bills and receipts should be sent to Dr Eva Bru-Domínguez (Bangor University) by the same date at email@example.com
