    Ireland: Arrivals and Departures. ACIS: Minnesota, October 2008.

    Call for Papers: Midwest American Conference: Ireland: Arrivals and Departures

    From the organisers:

    This year’s Midwest American Conference for Irish Studies will be held at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, Minnesota. The conference will open with a reception on the evening of Thursday, October 9.

    The conference theme is IRELAND: ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES. We encourage attendees to think of these concepts in the broadest possible way — not merely as the migration of individuals and groups, but as of the arrival of new ideas and new critical perspectives, and concomitantly, as the departure of received wisdom. We note the arrival of new literary voices, and the arrival of new conceptions of Ireland. And we believe all papers are best conceived as a “point of departure” for further research and discussion.

    This conference hopes to explore the movements of ideas, peoples, and more in Irish art, history, music, literature, cinema, and culture in Ireland from earliest times to the present. We welcome papers on any aspect of Irish studies from new or present ACIS members.

    Please propose 20-minute papers in 250-300-word abstracts in .pdf or .doc format to Professor Thomas O’Connell at by midnight on August 1, 2008 (Early submissions encouraged.). Include your name, institutional affiliation, and contact information in document, as well as in the body of your email.
