the North American Catalan Society

New Directions for Catalan Studies

Eton College, England, 17-19 December 2004

Call for Papers

The last thirty years have been a period of unprecedented growth and
development of Catalan Studies both in the United Kingdom and the
United States. Increasing numbers of universities are including
Catalan in their curricula, and research on Catalan culture shows
signs of considerable health. This seems then the time to address
important questions about the past and the future or our field. How
has the rise of theory affected Catalan Studies? Is Catalan cultural
studies possible or desirable? What can the place of our field be
within the present state of Modern Languages? What can our role be in
the promotion of Catalan culture abroad? In what directions should our
efforts for innovation go?

This joint conference, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the
Anglo-Catalan Society, aims to strengthen academic and friendship
links between Catalanists across the Atlantic, and seeks to act as a
forum to reflect on the trajectory of Catalan Studies since 1975, and
to explore new avenues for the analysis of Catalan culture and the
future development of our field. There will be three keynote lectures
by major exponents of Catalan cultural life: filmmaker Ventura Pons,
novelist Maria-Ant�nia Oliver, and cultural promoter Eliseu Climent
(pending confirmation).

Proposals for 20 minutes' papers are welcome on any area of Catalan
studies, including history, language, literature, visual arts, music,
film and television, politics, popular culture, etc. All proposals
should include a title and an abstract of approximately 200 words, and
should be sent to:

Josep-Anton Fern�ndez <j.a.fernandezqmul.ac.uk> (Europe)

Elisa Mart�-L�pez <e-marti-lopeznorthwestern.edu> (North America)

to arrive no later than 15 juliol 2004.
