AAGT 2020 Conference
County Clare, Ireland
9th – 13th September 2020

Edges of Exile and Belonging

We are pleased to confirm that our 2020 AAGT biennial conference will be held in County Clare, Ireland!

The conference will start on the evening of Wednesday September 9th and run through to Sunday September 13th.  Pre-conference workshops will take place on Tuesday the 8th and Wednesday the 9th.

The conference theme of ‘Edges of Exile and Belonging’ has emerged from ongoing conversations that developed during and after the 2018 conference and from our consultations with members of the wider AAGT community.

We will be convening on the edge of the Burren in the 18th Century Falls Hotel. The hotel, which runs entirely on hydro-electric power from Ennistymon Falls, is situated about 3km from the wild Atlantic Ocean in an area of natural beauty called the Burren. The Burren and Cliffs of Moher are designated areas of natural beauty by UNESCO.

We chose this venue not only for the beauty of the setting, and the excellent facilities, but also for its economical advantages. It is our aim to keep the cost of this conference as affordable as possible
