Emerging Research on Contemporary Wales



Megan Farr, University of Wales Trinity St David

Paul Jones, Wrexham Glyndŵr University

Friday 18 March 2022



You’re warmly invited to this event organised by the Centre for Welsh Politics and Society (CWPS-WISERD)

This seminar features two papers from emerging researchers in Wales, each of which looks at a different aspect of contemporary Welsh culture. Megan Farr will explore issues around the children’s literature publishing landscape in Wales today, while Paul Jones will consider the ethics and cultural assumptions surrounding the flying of national flags during Covid-19.

Megan Farr is a PhD Researcher at the University of Wales Trinity St David, where she is studying ‘Strategic Action for Internationalisation of the Children's Publishing Sector in Wales’, funded by KESS2 and sponsored by the Books Council of Wales. Her research areas cover Welsh children's literature, comparative children's literature, translation studies and publishing studies. She is also a PR and Marketing Manager for Firefly Press.

Paul Jones is a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Wrexham Glyndŵr University. Together with exhibiting, writing and presenting at conferences, and facilitated workshops in Athens, Greece and Riga, Latvia, Paul leads in the curating of research-based gallery spaces at the Regent Street campus. His research focuses on the relationship between identity and territory, humour and art, post-conceptual art practices, and the episteme of artistic research.


The online webinar will be in English. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers.

Please note that the Zoom link will be emailed to you in the confirmation email and 24 hours before the event.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
