Durham University

Zurbarán Centre for Spanish and Latin American Art


Annual Association of Hispanists

8th April 2019, 09:00 to 10th April 2019, 18:00, Durham University, AHGBI 2019

The Zurbarán Centre contributes to the annual Association of Hispanists (AHGBI 2019) taking place at Durham University in April 2019. A session devoted to Spanish art will be organised. The Centre is delighted that Sarah Wilson, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, has accepted our invitation to deliver a keynote speech at the conference.

The Association aims to promote scholarly research in Great Britain and Ireland into the study of the languages and cultures of the Hispanic and Lusophone world. We take an active part in continuing dialogue on these activities with the British and other Governments, and appropriate agencies such as HEFCE, and aim to promote the widest possible awareness of their cultural, educational and vocational importance. We co-operate with other organizations, such as the Spanish Embassy, the Instituto Cervantes, Canning House and the Asociación Internacional de Hispanistas, in the achievement of common objectives, and provide a forum for the discussion and elaboration of these aims by members. This includes an annual academic conference most commonly held in the Easter vacation at a British University (although expeditions have been made to Huelva, Braga and Valencia. During the course of the conference the Annual General Meeting of the Association takes place.

Membership is open to all Hispanists resident in Great Britain or Ireland who have a current research interest in the languages or cultures of Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan or Galician, or in other related aspects of Hispanic, Lusophone and Latin American subjects. Overseas members who are former members of the Association or are British subjects or Irish citizens qualify for membership, as do all temporary members of academic staff in the UK and Ireland (for example lectores and leitores, graduate teaching assistants and research assistants).
