Change, Commemoration, Community
22nd Australasian Irish Studies Conference: 29 November – 2 December 2016
Flinders University, 182 Victoria Square, Adelaide, South Australia
The 22nd Australasian Irish Studies conference. Australasian Irish Studies conferences are biennial conferences that are run under the auspices of ISAANZ.
Under the umbrella of Change we envisage subthemes of creativity, rebirth, revolution, renewal, new departures, innovation and economics. Commemoration encompasses all the significant events in Ireland’s political, social and economic life and is particularly significant in 2016 when there is a spotlight on commemorating and celebrating the centenary of the Easter Rising; equally important are the events of the Great War. Community may include the diaspora, Irish language, religion, volunteerism, immigration, emigration, sport, cultural studies, literature, writing, music, dance and drama.
The conference is run under the auspices of the Irish Studies Association of Australia and New Zealand. It is sponsored by Flinders University and proceedings will take place at the university’s flagship city premises in Victoria Square, Adelaide – a superb central location with modern facilities.
Presentation of conference papers will take place between Wednesday 30 November and Friday 2 December.
A conference dinner is planned for the evening of Thursday 1 December.
