    BAIS conference: September 2007

    By Noreen Bowden | May 17, 2007

    Returning Irish migrants will be the focus of a panel at the 2007 conference of the British Association for Irish Studies. The interdisciplinary BAIS conference takes place at the Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool in September; the theme is ‘New Irelands”.

    One panel will focus on “Return Migrants and Clashing Identities”. The following scholars will speak:

    • Sara Hannafin, NUI Galway: The Idea of Ireland as ‘home’: Place, Identity and Second Generation Return Migration
    • Sarah O’Brien, University of Limerick: A Second Exile: The Contested Identity of Irish Migrants in New Ireland
    • David Ralph, University of Edinburgh: Reconceptualising Home and Belonging: Irish Transnational Return Migrants from the USA, 1996-2006

    Another paper that will be of interest to migration scholars will be On Not Being Irish by Sarah Morgan of ESR2 Project and Bronwen Walter of Anglia Ruskin University.

    See more information at the BAIS website.
