50 Years of Spanish and Portuguese at Oxford: Celebration Event
On Friday February 28th 2020, the Sub-Faculties of Spanish and Portuguese will be celebrating fifty years since the creation, in 1969, of what was initially a single joint Sub-Faculty. Both Spanish and Portuguese have grown rapidly since this establishment solidified their place in the study of Medieval and Modern Languages within the Humanities at Oxford. The huge interest in Hispanic and Lusophone cultures shows no sign of abating and what are now two separately-constituted Sub-Faculties are at the forefront of research and teaching in their disciplines.
The celebration will consist of short talks from past and present members and students, exhibitions, and other activities, and will end with a wine reception in the Taylorian. All former students of Spanish and/or Portuguese will be welcome to celebrate with us.
