Arqus International Forum on Romance Studies (AIFRS)
In February 2021 the Arqus European University Alliance launched the Arqus International Forum on Romance Studies, acronym AIFRS.
The AIFRS was founded by Victoriano Peña Sánchez (University of Granada), David Porcel Bueno (University of Granada), Fausto De Michele (University of Graz), Katharina Gerhalter (University of Graz) and Stefan Koch (University of Graz), who serve as the AIFRS board until 2023.
The AIFRS is a multilingual, interdisciplinary network for research and teaching on the Romance languages. It is formed by scholars from the seven Arqus universities Granada, Graz, Padua, Bergen, Lyon, Leipzig und Vilnius.
The official website is online since July, there you will find further information und contacts.
