ASYRAS is pleased to announce the 9th ASYRAS Conference, under the title On Routes and Beginnings, which will take place at the University of Salamanca, 29th May – 31st May 2024. The Conference is intended as a forum where early-career specialists in English Studies can present the results of their research. The Conference will count with presentations by the following confirmed keynote speakers: Dr Manuel González de la Aleja Barberán (University of Salamanca), Dr Aroa Orrequia-Barea (University of Cádiz), and Dr Sergio López Martínez (University of Oviedo).
