Universidad de Alcalá
The University of Alcalá is one of Europe’s oldest universities, with early origins that can be traced as far back as 1293.
The university as we know it today was founded in 1499 by Cardinal Cisneros. Conceived as a veritable City of God on Earth, the Cisnerian University’s complex of colleges and convents was the world’s first campus university, one of the reasons why UNESCO declared the university and the city a World Heritage site in 1998. (Find out more at the University website.)
The Conference will be held at the Colegio de San Ildefonso – Rectorado and the Colegio de Málaga – Facultad de Filosofía y Letras. Both buildings are located in the Historic Campus within 4 minutes walking distance from each other.
The Historic Campus is right in the centre of the city of Alcalá de Henares
Plenary and parallel sessions will be held in both buildings. You will be able to find detailed information in the Conference programme when it is published.
