Welcome to AEDEAN Asociación Española de Estudios Anglo-Norteamericanos


Due to health and safety concerns related to the Covid-19 situation, we will not be able to host the AEDEAN conference in 2020. We remain hopeful that the conference itself can be rescheduled for November 2021 with a minimal number of adjustments

Founded in Seville in 1976, AEDEAN stands for “Asociación Española de Estudios Anglo-Norteamericanos” (Spanish Association of Anglo-American Studies). According to our constitution, AEDEAN’s main aim is

“to encourage, stimulate and promote in Spain the study and research of language, literature, linguistics, critical theory, geography, institutions and, in general, the culture of English-speaking countries.”

AEDEAN has a current membership of about 1.200, which includes university professors, lecturers and graduate students both from Spanish universities and abroad. The interests of its members are very wide. They range from theoretical, historical and applied linguistics to all literatures written in English, as well as cultural studies, literary theory, film studies, comparative literature, feminist and gender studies, and so on.

We are already engaged in the preparations for AEDEAN’S 44th conference in Santander. You will find all the information in the conference webpage.
