CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
KINGS COLLEGE LONDON 4 - 6 SEPTEMBER 2012

The Association will hold its 33rd Conference organised jointly by Kings College London and the University of Westminster, for 4 - 6 September 2012. The conference will take place at King’s College London.

You are cordially invited to offer a paper, panel, or workshop presentation. Proposals for panels of four papers maximum are also invited on specific themes in addition to individual presentations. Any proposed panel should be organised by one convenor who will be responsible for inviting the speakers and chairing the session. You are also invited to suggest any speakers who you think would be willing to offer a paper, bearing in mind, however, that ACIS does not normally offer a fee or expenses for speakers.

The choice of all panels and papers will be made by the Conference programme organisers in consultation with the Executive Committee.

Below are the suggested thematic areas for papers and panels, which must relate primarily to Spain and Portugal. The themes are not exclusive and may be interdisciplinary in nature.

Politics, Government, International Relations, the EU, Nationalism, Regionalisms, Elections
Economics, Business, Labour, Social and Welfare issues, Education
Film, Television, Journalism, Media, Advertising, Leisure, Tourism, Sport
Twentieth-Century History
Cultural Studies, Identities, Gender
Language, Linguistics, Language Policy and Pedagogy

Other suggestions are welcome, and Panels can be more specifically oriented within these broad areas. Papers will be allocated a maximum of 30 minutes on the programme (i.e. approx 20 minutes for the paper and 10 minutes for discussion and debate).

If you wish to offer a paper, please refer to the Guidelines for Papers (on the next page). For papers and/or panels, please send, preferably by e-mail, a title and abstract (approx. 150 words) by Friday 30 March 2012 to:
