Eire-Ireland: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Irish Studies welcomes submissions for a 2014 special issue on Irish Crime from 1921 to the present. The guest editors seek essays that explore crime and criminality in Ireland from historical and literary perspectives, as well as submissions that draw upon methods including (but not confined to) criminology, geography, film studies, the visual arts, and music, in order to broaden our understanding of the nature and significance of crime in modern Irish society and culture.
We welcome submissions that examine such areas as crimes against persons and property, white-collar crime, organized crime, and the drugs economy, along with studies that draw connections or distinctions between “ordinary” crime and “political” crime, and essays that trace the changing legal, cultural, and popular definitions of crime. Likewise of interest are contributions that explore Irish crime in literature and film, the relationship between journalism and the public perception of crime, as well as any work that brings to light new sources and methods to help illustrate the importance of crime to Irish studies.
The deadline for submissions, which should be between 6000 and 8000 words, is 1 September 2013. All submissions will be subject to peer review. Literature & Arts submissions should be prepared according to the MLA Style Manual; History & Social Sciences submissions should adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style.
Please send your submission electronically to both guest editors: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
