69th Annual AHGBI Conference 2024

University of Birmingham
Monday 25 March (00:00) - Thursday 28 March 2024 (00:00)

The 69th annual conference of the Association of Hispanists of Great Britain and Ireland will comprise of 2 face-to-face days at the University of Birmingham (Monday 25th – Tuesday 26th March 2024) and one day fully online (Friday 28th March 2024). 

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.
