Started in 2014, the North American Symposium of Galician Studies aims to create a collaborative space for North American, Galician and international scholars to discuss issues related to the expansion of Galician language studies and how we approach the study of minority languages and cultures.
With the goal of advancing Galician studies in the West, Regis will cohost the third North American symposium from Oct. 18-20 in Denver with optional events on Oct. 21.
The symposium will feature interdisciplinary panels and presentations covering a wide range of topics pertaining to Galician language, literature, culture and identity.
More symposium registration details coming soon.
