Today marks the beginning of this year’s Iberian Week!
Every year, the Department of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies holds a series of talks, screenings, exhibitions and activities which celebrates the cultural and linguistic diversity of the Iberian Peninsula. Iberian Week is held on South Campus at the University of Liverpool, as well as at cultural and commercial venues across the city such as FACT and Lunya. The event is open to students, staff and the general public alike.
This year’s Iberian Week is being held in conjunction with our annual Peers Symposium, as well as the Cities in Dialogue Exhibition at FACT, which is part of the AHRC-funded project Latin(o) Digital Art.
