2017 CSANA Conference
Vancouver Welsh Society
Vancouver, British Columbia

We are delighted to partner with the Vancouver Welsh Society in hosting the next CSANA conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, to be held April 27–30, 2017. We are excited not only to bring CSANA to Vancouver for the first time but also to work more closely than ever with partners in the Celtic community. The Vancouver Welsh Society was founded in 1908, and in 1929 its members built the Cambrian Hall, a dedicated Celtic community space where the Welsh language remains in everyday use. Welsh Society members have enthusiastically supported bringing CSANA to Vancouver and generously donated the use of the Cambrian Hall for the duration of the conference.

Papers are invited on any aspect of language, literature, history, folklore and / or culture of the Celtic peoples from any period. Abstracts of approximately 200 words should be sent by November 15, 2016 December 1, 2016, to Antone Minard via e-mail ( or with the subject line ‘CSANA 2017 Abstract’. Please note that speakers are required to be members of CSANA. A membership form can be downloaded here, and further information about the conference venue, travel to Vancouver, and hotel can be found on the conference website, here.
