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 Dr E Wyn James and Dr Bill Jones (of the School of History and Archaeology), who will be pleased to hear from anyone interested in the Centre and its work.
The Tenth Annual Conference of the Centre was held on Friday, 11th of November at the School of Welsh. The conference was entitled 'Welsh Travel Writing in the Americas'.
The Eighth Annual Public Lecture of the Centre was delivered on Thursday, 31 March 2011, at 5.30pm, in Room 0.31, Humanities Building, Cardiff University, by Prof. Colin H. Williams, Research Professor in the School of Welsh, Cardiff University, on 'The Office of Language Commissioner: The Welsh Model from a Canadian Perspective'.
