The year’s Peers Symposium takes the notion of crossing as its theme.  Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning centre on the role that borders play in both the formation and interrogation of Catalan culture and identity. On Thursday afternoon, the symposium shifts its focus to Latin America, exploring the various ways in which border crossing – whether across nations, disciplines or various media – contribute towards our understanding of cultural production and memory.

The symposium  is being held in conjunction with Iberian Week, as well as the Cities in Dialogue Exhibition at FACT, which is part of the AHRC-funded project Latin(o) Digital Art.
