Romantic Science Conference
RCLAS was delighted to host the September 2008 meeting of the Wales and the West Romanticism Seminar. This was on the fascinating, multi-faceted subject of ROMANTIC SCIENCE. The plenary speaker was Prof. Anne Janowitz, who spoke on ’“Longing for Other Worlds”: The Plurality of Worlds Debate and the Sciences of Infinity’. This conference has now taken place, but you can view the programme here.

Pathologies Conference
The inaugural conference of the Research Centre for Literature, Arts and Science, on the theme of 'Pathologies: Questions of Embodiment in Literature, Arts and Science’, took place at the University of Glamorgan on 20th-21st August 2007. The organising committee would like to thank everybody who attended the conference, as a guest or speaker. It was an exciting, stimulating event that established many fruitful interdisciplinary connections between speakers and ideas.
