Research Centre Wales aims to bring together researchers working on all aspects of Wales in both Welsh and English from different disciplines across the Arts and Humanities and in Language Policy at Bangor University.

The third postgraduate conference organised by Research Centre Wales will be held at Bangor University on 2–3 June 2020 and aims to showcases research being done on Wales and Welsh by postgraduates at all levels. This year’s theme is Voices.

At the start of a new decade we face significant questions regarding the nature of Welsh politics, culture and identity. Old traditions are merging with new voices and ideas, creating a narrative which reflects the diversity of what it means to be Welsh. This conference is an opportunity to consider all kinds of voices, whether bringing the past to life or discussing our present situation and future.
