The Hispanic (formerly Spanish) Society is a departmental Society organised and run by students of Spanish. It aims to promote Spanish cultural activities. It has been in existence for more than fifty years, expanding to include Catalan, Portuguese and Galician as well as Latin American interests.
Following the introduction of the Erasmus (now Socrates) programme to the department, there has been an increased mingling of Spanish-Irish activities and direct contact with visiting Spaniards, giving Irish students an opportunity to relive their time abroad or to get valuable experience before setting off on their year abroad.
Activities arranged by the Society in past years include Flamenco dancing classes, day-trips to Kinsale, fiesta nights, table quizzes, Spanish film nights, and the infamous 'Hispanic Week'.
Each year a group of students gather together to elect a committee: Auditor, Secretary, Finance Officer, Entertainments Officer and Public Relation Officers.*
If you are interested in joining the Society at any time, just go along to any of its meetings and get ready for a Spanish-filled year of FUN! Or you may contact this year's Auditor, Sean Layton, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep an eye also on the departmental noticeboard, where all information regarding the Society's activities will be posted.
