The Association for Contemporary Iberian Studies (ACIS) brings together academics from a wide

range of disciplines who share an interest in contemporary developments in Spain and Portugal. It

welcomes new members working in any relevant field.

The Association holds an annual three-day conference which is noted for the variety and scope of the papers presented: they normally cover such themes as politics, economics, geography, regional identities, international relations, feminism, media analysis, television, cinema, linguistics, teaching methodologies and so on.

We are very pleased to announce that the 38th ACIS Annual Conference will take place at the Universidade Católica do Porto, Portugal, from 7 to 9 September 2016.

Oporto city has been described as “antique, highly noble, always loyal and unconquered” due to the courage, strength of character and determination of its people. Tested throughout history (the Discoveries and the nineteenth-century civil war) it is nowadays a dynamic, innovative and open city, where knowledge and creativity abound. From science to culture, arts and sports, from the warmth of its people to its architecture and natural resources, Oporto has become a truly world-class city. Cultural and leisure facilities such as Casa da Música, the Coliseum, the City Park, the Serralves Foundation – with its Museum of Contemporary Art and park – and of course the iconic Avenida dos Aliados are just some examples of the city’s heritage.

Located on the west side of the city, in Foz do Douro, the Universidade Católica do Porto was founded in 1978 and has, at the moment, eight academic units and eight research centres, providing a stimulating and multicultural academic environment for students and researchers throughout Portugal and around the world.
