Abstracts are invited for the 19th Australasian Irish Studies conference of the Irish Studies Association of Australia and New Zealand. Hosted by the Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand, the conference will take place between 7 and 10 November 2012. Confirmed keynote speakers are:
• Professor Rónán McDonald (University of New South Wales)
• Professor Cormac Ó Gráda (University College Dublin)
• Dr Louise Ryan (Middlesex University)
• Professor Graham Walker (Queen's University Belfast)
The conference title is Global Ireland. Papers from various disciplinary angles in Irish Studies are welcome from both academics and other researchers across a variety of themes. The multidisciplinary character of the conference is reflected in the choice of keynote speakers with expertise in history, literature, economics, and sociology.
In light of the conference being hosted by the Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies at the University of Otago, papers with comparative and/or transnational approaches to Ireland and its diaspora are particularly welcome. Such approaches might be geographical (between countries or localities), ethnic (between the Irish and other groups), or within Ireland and its diaspora (eg. gender experiences).
Proposals for papers and panels should include a title, abstract, and brief biographical information (including institutional affiliation and contact details) and be submitted before the deadline of 18 May 2012 to the conference organiser, Professor Angela McCarthy, email firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information see the conference website: www.otago.ac.nz/ciss/irishconf2012.
