Diaspóriques: Conference Series

Diaspóriques: Conversaciones con la diáspora

Every summer, we organize in Xixón a conference series focused on dialogues between Asturian academics and cultural creators who reside inside and outside of Asturias. It is hosted by the Laboral, Ciudad de la Cultura, sponsored by the Principado de Asturias.

The 2022 inaugural year we had two roundtables, presented in tandem with the Seminariu de Filoloxía Asturiana from the Universidad de Oviedo. The first one, entitled “El asturiano dentro y fuera de Asturias” featured a conversation between Covadonga Lamar Prieto, from the University of California-Riverside, Ramón D’Andrés, from the Universidad de Oviedo, and Imanol Suárez Palma, from the University of Florida. The second round table developed the topic “El asturiano y las redes sociales” and included Miriam Villazón Valbuena, from the University of California-Riverside, and Claudia Menéndez Fernández, from the University of Oviedo. It was moderated by Isabel Álvarez Sancho, from Oklahoma State University.

These events are free and open to the public. We hope to talk with you there.
