23rd Australasian Irish Studies Conference

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.

Proposals for papers, including a title and an abstract of no more than 150 words, should be emailed to Professor Jonathan Wooding: jonathan.wooding@sydney.edu.au

The closing date for abstracts is 12 May 2018. Proposals for themed sessions would also be welcomed.
