The conference aims to provide a forum for those interested in the language diversity of Wales. The event is conceived in a broad way and is not restricted to purely linguistic topics. The forum is also open to researchers with literary perspectives, to those interested in translation studies, and to researchers from the fields of media, arts, and anthropology insofar as they are working on topics connected with the language diversity of Wales.
The registration fee and more detail on how to register will be made available on the website.

Final Call for Papers:
Within the linguistic perspective, we welcome participants dealing with diversity in Welsh, English or any other languages that are or have been used in Wales (e.g. French, Latin, Flemish, Romani, Somali, sign language, etc.). Within the field of literary studies, possible topics include: the use of Welsh in English-medium literature, the use of English in Welsh-medium literature, and the use of dialects in Welsh literature.
The conference will also feature a workshop session, part of which will be a student oriented careers workshop.
Abstracts for both papers and posters should not exceed 300-350 words including the references. Presentations should be 20 minutes in length, and will be followed by 10 minutes of discussion.
