Tabled 08 September 2010
2010-12 Session
That this House congratulates Swansea University on establishing Academi Hywel Teifi in memory of the distinguished Welsh academic, the late Professor Hywel Teifi Edwards of Aberarth and Llangennech; recognises that the Academi's purposes are to promote learning and teaching through the medium of the Welsh language throughout the community and scholarship through the medium of the language; places on record its appreciation of the outstanding life and work of Professor Edwards as a teacher, scholar, broadcaster, politician and defender and promoter of the Welsh language and especially in supporting Welsh learners; recalls with pride that the winner of the Chair at this year's National Eisteddfod in Blaenau Gwent was Swansea University's Tudur Hallam whose verse was a celebration of Professor Edwards' devoted and enthusiastic commitment to Wales, its culture, its people and its future; and notes that the new Academi will build on the progress in recent years of the Welsh language being a source of pride for all communities in Wales, rather than a cause of division.
