Our intention is that the conference explores the theme Ireland: History, Memory and Myth. A century after the Irish Revolution, and towards the end of the Decade of Commemorations, acts of remembering and mythologising the past figure significantly in the individual and collective lives of the Irish at home and abroad (not least in Australia and New Zealand). We welcome proposals for papers or panels exploring this theme, or which otherwise investigate topics in Irish history, literature, language, archaeology, politics, sociology, cultural studies or performing arts. The conference, sponsored by the University of Auckland and the Irish Embassy in New Zealand, will be held at the University’s city campus, a short distance from the centre of Auckland City.
We are very much aware of uncertainties of travel at this time. For this reason, in addition to in-person presenters we welcome proposals for papers (or posters) from participants who will join us through the online conference platform. We particularly welcome proposals from Early Career Researchers and Postgrads.
