Galicia 21: Journal of Contemporary Galician Studies

About Galicia 21

Galicia 21: Journal of Contemporary Galician Studies seeks to bring together multidisciplinary approaches to those themes of current and growing interest within the field of Galician Studies. It places special emphasis on discussion and debate centred upon the thematic concerns of this expanding discipline in order to foster connections with neighbouring frameworks and approaches.

In addition to offering a new forum on a truly international plane of critical engagement, in which scholars may debate, question and critique existing paradigms of the field, this journal aims to expand and redefine the conceptual parameters of Galician Studies in the twenty-first century.

Galicia 21: Journal of Contemporary Galician Studies will be an annual publication that will be made freely available online. Contributions are welcomed from scholars working in any related discipline concerned with Galician-language activity, from sociolinguistics to cultural history, from translation studies to philosophy, from marketing to historiography, from postcolonialism to gender studies. Its contents will comprise seven articles, five book reviews and a guest essay from an invited writer.
