updated: 
Tuesday, December 15, 2015 - 8:50am
Universidad de Puerto Rico/Northeastern University

Summary: Debates on self-determination and sovereignty for the peoples of Puerto Rico have been framed by formulae developed during the Spanish colonial period to support claims for full integration into the kingdom, limited autonomy, and independence.

This interdisciplinary international conference, held in Cardiff, the city of Roald Dahl's birth and childhood, in his centenary year (16th-18th June 2016), will give further impetus to the substantial critical attention devoted to the author's work by seeking new ways of understanding his achievement and place in twentieth- and twenty-first-century culture, broadly considered. The emphasis will be on defamiliarizing Dahl in the very act of bringing him 'home'.
