The International Society for Contemporary Legend Research is pleased to announce that the 2021 Perspectives on Contemporary Legend 38th International Conference will be held in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain). The organizers of the conference are Carme Oriol and Emili Samper and it will be supported by the Folklore Archive and the Rovira i Virgili University.
As usual, the 38th Perspectives on Contemporary Legend meeting will be organized as a series of seminars on all aspects of contemporary, urban, or modern legend research are sought, as are those on any legend-like tradition (rumour, conspiracy theories, fake news, etc.) that circulate actively at present or have circulated at an earlier historical period.
As a consequence of the health crisis caused by COVID-19, and in agreement with the ISCLR Board, we are forced to postpone the celebration of the 38th International Conference in Tarragona.
The conference will take place in 2021, on dates that will be announced in the future. We regret the inconvenience caused, but we are in an exceptional situation. Thanks for your understanding.
