12-14 December 2023, Australian Catholic University. Melbourne. From the recent disruptions of the pandemic to those of emigration and diaspora, Irish history and literature include both large-scale and personal divergences from anticipated futures. These disruptions have initiated transitions to new cultural, political, social, and disciplinary terrains that are often connected to Australia and New Zealand. For ISAANZ 26, the convenors welcome papers on any aspect of Ireland, Irish Australia or Irish New Zealand, or the Irish diaspora generally. In particular, we invite papers addressing the themes of disruption and transition.

CFP: RISE. Review of Irish Studies in Europe
1 March 2023. Remapping Irish Literary and Cultural Landscapes in the Mid-Twentieth Century. This special issue of RISE defines mid-twentieth century as from the 1930s to the 1970s—roughly coinciding with the conservative years of “de Valera’s Ireland,” starting from Fianna Fáil entering government in 1932, up until Seán Lemass’s programmes of economic expansion which led to Ireland’s European Economic Community membership in 1973. It understands literary and cultural landscapes in the broadest term: horizontally as a geographic space with borders real and imagined; vertically as a space where high and low cultures clash and commingle. We welcome studies that examine the various forms of border-crossing—geographic, linguistic, generic—that contribute to a fuller map of Irish literature and culture in the mid-twentieth century. We especially appreciate scholarship that expands traditional disciplinary boundaries, from the fields of history, film, media, visual culture, and digital humanities.
Postgraduate Essay Competition is Open
ISAANZ and the editor of AJIS are pleased to announce the 2023 competition is now open to anyone enrolled in an MA or PhD between June 2022 and June 2023 at any tertiary institution, with essays on any aspect of Irish Studies considered. Essays entered for the prize and thus for publication in AJIS must not be submitted for publication elsewhere until after judging is completed. Submissions must be received by 31 March 2023.
CFP: Multilingual legacies of Ireland’s revolution
10 December 2022. Ireland’s revolutionary period (1916–1923) is generally studied and approached in terms of the English language. This does not reflect the rich linguistic landscape of early-twentieth century Ireland: large sections of the country were still Irish speaking, the travelling Mincéir community were strongly grounded in their own linguistic traditions, while regional dialects and language varieties, including Ulster Scots, were not just a marker of geographic background but also of socioeconomic class. Ireland was also home to various ethnic communities, including migrants from France, Germany, Switzerland, as well as a vibrant Jewish community from Russia. This symposium invites contributions from scholars working across different languages. It aims to explore how the events of the Irish revolution and civil war were conceived and reconceived in various languages at home and abroad at different points in time and during different political moments. In an increasingly diverse Ireland, what can we learn from these multilingual legacies?
