A series of presentations by prestigious speakers who are experts, or have a particular interest in the field of Cornish Studies from the UK, USA and Australia. Following their presentations, the panel will be available to address attendee questions in a plenary facilitated by Dr Garry Tregidga and Dr Joanie Willett, Co-Directors of the Institute of Cornish Studies, University of Exeter.
What makes Cornish Studies relevant in a global context? Well, perhaps a key reason is that Cornwall can be seen as a good case study of key globalisation processes, particularly global migration. Cornwall's position and relationship to the other Celtic countries, England, Europe and indeed the world also invites academic study worldwide. Today we mark St Piran's Day by looking at that global, outward facing aspect of Cornish past and present in a Cornish World.
