Our podcasts online
We now have several podcasts of past lectures on our website. The most recent is our 2020 June Gruffydd Memorial Lecture with the Montgomeryshire Society; “The Novelist Elena Puw Morgan: Rethinking Modernism”. The novelist’s granddaughter, Dr Mererid Puw Davies, gave this talk, and it was co-authored with her sister Angharad Puw Davies. It is well worth listening to.
For more podcasts on subjects as varied as Emyr Humphreys, Sir Kyffin Williams, the Welsh economy, the Dictionary of Welsh Biography and Wales and Agincourt go to Previous Talks. You will also find on here the video of Gerwyn Wiliams’ excellent Eisteddfod Lecture on Cynan’s Mab y Bwthyn.
