23rd Australasian Irish Studies Conference 2018

ISAANZ is excited to announce that registrations are now open for

23rd Australasian Irish Studies Conference!

The theme of the 23rd Australasian Irish Studies conference ‘myth and memory’ captures debates in both modern and medieval Irish Studies. Our conference occurs at the centenary of a period of change in Ireland, during which were born new narratives of 1916—both as triumph and defeat. There were increasingly conflicted memories of WW1. The cultural life that surrounded the changing political scene included many revivals of imagery from the a distant, sometimes mythological, past, with a renewed investment in Celtic art, language and literature.

The conference will be held from 27th November to 30th November at the University of Sydney.

There will be a colloquium (Tionól) through the medium of the Irish language on Tuesday afternoon 27 November, from 2.00-5.30 PM, prior to the commencement of the main conference. An informal reception on Tuesday evening will mark the beginning of the conference.

All papers (apart from those at the Tionól) will be delivered between 9.30 AM Wednesday and 4PM on Friday. The whole conference will finish by 4pm on Friday 30 November.
