Literatures of Wales

Wales is the only one of the British Celtic nations to retain a widely-spoken, viable indigenous language and a vibrant contemporary literature. It is also the only British nation whose distinctive Anglophone literature remains marginalised within its own education system. At university level, the linguistic divide of the 20th Century encouraged the separate study of the 2 literatures, a schism which modern scholarship has only recently started to overcome. Bangor, a genuinely bilingual cultural centre, is an ideal place in which to study these 2 literary traditions from Wales, and to consider the question of what happens to English-language literature when it is not the principal tradition.
