14th International Robert Graves Society Conference, Mallorca, 10th-14th July, 2018 *CFP deadline now extended to 4th June 2018*


Plans are advanced for the 14th International Robert Graves Society Conference, 10th – 14th July 2018. The theme this year will be:

‘Robert Graves and Europe: Good-bye to All That / But It Still Goes On’

The conference will take place at the former Gran Hotel, Palma de Mallorca, where Graves and Riding stayed on their arrival in Palma in 1929, and at Deià, where they lived until 1936. Graves returned to Mallorca in 1946 with Beryl Pritchard Graves and their family and lived in Deià until his death in 1985.

The hotel is now the Caixa Cultural, a cultural centre in Palma run by a major Catalan and Spanish bank, ‘La Caixa’. This will be the fifth Robert Graves conference to be held there and at Deià since the centenary conference in Mallorca held in 1995. We are most grateful to La Caixa bank and staff at Caixa Cultural for their continued support.

The timings of the conference will be Tuesday, 10th July 2018, at 5.00 pm (approx) – Saturday, 14th July 2018, at 2:00 pm (approx).
