This year’s Calpe Conference, sponsored by the Gibraltar National Museum and now in its twenty-third edition, will conclude with a talk entitled “The origins and development of the Gibraltarian identity” to be given by the Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Joseph Garcia.

Dr Garcia will discuss the origin and development of the Gibraltarian identity. The identity of the people who have lived on the Rock for over 300 years and who continue to assert their right to self-determination. He will look at different influences on the transformation of that identity including key historical moments. Dr Garcia will argue that the identity of the people of Gibraltar has evolved, and continues to evolve, over time.

The address will begin at 5.00pm this Saturday 21st September and will be held at the University. Members of the public are invited to attend.
