Second Symposium on Catalonia in Australia

Segon simposi sobre Catalunya a Austràlia

Segundo simposio sobre Cataluña en Australia

Co-organisers: Dr Stewart King, Senior Lecturer in Spanish and Catalan Studies, Monash University.

Prof. Alfredo Martínez Expósito, Prof. of Hispanic Studies, the University of Melbourne

To celebrate the resumption of teaching dedicated Catalan language and culture at an Australian university, Monash and Melbourne universities are jointly hosting the “Second Symposium on Catalonia in Australia.”

The “First Symposium on Catalonia in Australia” was coordinated by Dr Robert Archer at La Trobe University in September 1996 and it brought together researchers and research students from Catalonia and Australia. In maintaining the title of the first symposium, this second one acknowledges the history of Catalan scholarship in Australia, without which this second symposium would not be possible.

The symposium will take place at the University of Melbourne on 27 July 2013.

We welcome papers of 20-minutes duration on topics related to any aspect of the cultures and societies of Catalonia and the other Catalan-speaking territories.

Please send proposals to by 10 June 2013.

This is a free event. To register, please email Jeremy Taylor: by 12 July 2013.
