Reflections on Studying the Past – Meddyliau ar Astudio’r Gorffennol

We have again chosen a broad topic which speakers can approach from all angles:

This year, it is ‘Facing Power’ – inviting questions about interactions with power and the powerful, and how they are regulated, channelled, communicated and performed. We acknowledge that ‘power’ can be understood in many different ways, and our speakers are offering us very different ways of thinking about that topic.
