American Conference for Irish Studies (ACIS) Annual Meeting 2016 University of Notre Dame
contact email: 

This panel welcomes submissions on theorizing Irish-hyphenate (Irish-Canadian, Irish-American, Irish-Caribbean, etc.) literary and cultural studies. Given the conference theme of "The Worlding of Irish Studies" this panel will consider how "non-Irish" national boundaries and national literary histories complicate in practical and theoretical ways Irish-hyphenate studies. How do the critical discourses and methodological assumptions of disciplines within the "non-Irish" part of the hyphenate inflect and shape literary and cultural studies of Irish-hyphenate texts? More broadly, what is the relationship between Irish Studies and, for example, Irish American studies or Irish Canadian studies?

Sarah Piatt at 180 and Palace - Burner at 15: the View from 2016

2016 will mark the 180th anniversary of Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt's birth and the 15th anniversary of the groundbreaking publication of Paula Bernat Bennett's Palace - Burner, the first modern anthology of the poet's work. Since her mid-nineteenth-century arrival on America's literary scene, Sarah Piatt has been recognized for her "womanly" subject matter and ethos, and the "feminine" quality of her poetry has been aptly characterized by nineteenth-century British author Alice Meynell "not as a grace, but as a force."

Traces of the erotic are all around us, embodied in images, music, advertising, stories, inter-personal interactions, dreams and desires. Whether expressed in symbolic or literal form, the erotic has captured human imagination across time and cultures, shaping our understanding and experience of pleasure and intimacy along the way. While there is no denying that the erotic has an irresistible appeal, it is also viewed as a taboo to be suppressed or hidden.
