The Program in the Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World (CLAW) at the College of Charleston calls for papers on the Irish in the Atlantic World. The conference will take place in Charleston, South Carolina, from Feb. 27 to March 2, 2007. It will examine the experience of Irish of all denominations and traditions around the Atlantic as well as the Irish impact on the Atlantic World as a whole, from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries; from the United States and Canada, to the Caribbean, Latin America and Africa. This interdisciplinary conference welcomes papers on Irish and Irish diaspora history, folklore, literature, etc.
We particularly encourage new scholars and graduate students to submit proposals. Major scholars in the field have committed to comment on papers, including Kerby Miller, Janet Nolan, John Waters, Patrick Griffin, Eamonn Wall, Edmundo Murray, and Kieran Quinlan. A volume of selected papers from the conference will be published in our Carolina Atlantic World Series by the University of South Carolina Press (For more info. see www.sc.edu/uscpress)
