II Research Workshop in English Studies POSTPONED

Dear ASYRAS members,

 

Given the current situation caused by the COVID-19 outbreak in Spain, we have decided to postpone our II Research Workshop in English Studies, which was going to take place in May in Oviedo.
If everything goes well, we will be able to meet you all in Oviedo in September, once the situation is hopefully under control. The new programme, together with a new deadline to register and send your proposals, will be published once the new date has been confirmed. Thank you for your understanding. Please, keep posted for further information.
The Organising Committee

COVID-19 outbreak

Dear members,

 
This is a message from the Executive Board of ASYRAS for you to stay calm and do your best in this moment of unrest. We know the last days have been difficult for the academic community, with several universities closing their doors due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 
 
We just want to let you know that ASYRAS will keep working and that we will still be here for you. We do not know what the situation will be in May for our Workshop in Oviedo, but preparations will not stop and we will let you know of any information we get in this respect.
 
The CFP for our journal, GAUDEAMUS, is of course still open, and the reviewing process will continue as planned afterwards. 
 
We encourage you to follow all measures suggested by both sanitary and academic authorities, and to make use of this time to keep working, reading and researching.
 
Best wishes,
 
The Executive Board of ASYRAS
