Venue: TALC 2004 will be held at the University of Granada, founded in
under the initiative of the Emperor Carlos V, by means of a Papal Bull
Pope Clemente VII. With 472 years of tradition, the University of
been an exceptional witness to history, as its influence in the city's
social and cultural environment grew until it was to become, over a
almost five centuries, an intellectual and cultural nucleus in Southern
in its own right. The university centres and buildings are located in
places in the urban area of Granada, giving the city its particular
style, since of the 270,000 inhabitants of the capital, 60,000 are
students. But Granada also fulfils other special requirements:
historically it is the last redoubt of Islam in Western Europe (the
Alhambra and the
Generalife are samples of the splendour of this civilisation); Granada
is also a Renaissance city (the Hospital Real or the Cathedral are only
examples of Granada's well-preserved historical heritage). To speak of
is, therefore, to speak of an exceptional geography, midway between the
warm sea and the high mountains: 60 minutes by car from the province of
Granada's beaches, 75 minutes from Malaga, and 30 minutes from the
ski resort (at a height of 3,400 metres).
The Conference fee is =80 80 (Students: =80 30) if you register before
