This year, the Cyfrwng Conference will be held at The ATRiuM, University of Glamorgan in Cardiff on the 16th and 17th of June. Cyfrwng aims to provide a forum for the presentation of research and scholarly discussion concerning the media in Wales, namely film, television, new media, radio, journalism, theatre and performance studies.
As I represent the Archive on the management committee for Cyfrwng, I’m looking forward to the conference. The theme this year is media and culture in small nations.
Excellent speakers have been confirmed, and personally, I’m looking forward to the interview with Marc Evans, and the round table session on the future of S4C.
This year will see the launch of the Dave Berry Memorial Lecture, and Chris Williams from Swansea University will give a lecture on Hwyl a Hiraeth: Richard Burton and Wales. This will also be one of my personal highlights.
Registration for the conference is now open, so make sure you’re there!
