‘The Antipodes and beyond: foregrounding Irish women’
The 24th ISAANZ Conference, December 10-12, Adelaide, South Australia
The Antipodes: the opposite, figuratively, geographically, metaphorically. We are interested in accounts of women and men who lived opposite lives often off the main stage, but who played their part in Irish history, literature and the sciences, especially in Australia and New Zealand.
The conference will be held in Adelaide, South Australia, where 2019 celebrates 125 years of women’s suffrage. We are interested in foregrounding the role of Irish women of the Antipodes and beyond: Irish women whose stories have been newly discovered; and Irish women whose stories can be seen in a new light. We are also interested in a broad interpretation of ‘the Antipodes’ and we aim for a multidisciplinary focus, including the creative arts.
Abstracts of 250 words will be welcomed up until 31 May 2019. Please email your abstract and short bio (150 words) to any of those named below:
