Cardiff Centre for Welsh American Studies
The Cardiff Centre for Welsh American Studies was established in 2001 in order to promote the study of the culture, language, literature and history of the Welsh in the Americas, and in the United States, Canada and Patagonia in particular.
By organising seminars, lectures and conferences, through publications, and by encouraging scholarly collaboration and discussion, it provides a focal point for an international network of scholars who have an interest in this rapidly growing field of study.
The Centre is located in the School of Welsh at Cardiff University. Its co-Directors are Professor E Wyn James and Professor Bill Jones (of the School of History, Archaeology and Religion), who will be pleased to hear from anyone interested in the Centre and its work.
The Centre's Annual Lecture for 2013, entitled 'Gwilym Hiraethog, John Griffith ("Y Gohebydd"), and the emancipation of American slaves', will be delivered (in Welsh) by Professors E. Wyn James and Bill Jones in Societies Tent 1 at the Denbighshire and District National Eisteddfod on Thursday, 8 August 2013, at 3.00pm.
