Print forms of poetry have traditionally been integral to writing and literature classes. However, for many students, especially those in first- or even second-year classes, the written word and the visual layout of poetic form can be foreign, even intimidating. This session will consider the possibilities offered by oral forms such as storytelling and spoken-word poetry. In addition to considering the pedagogical possibilities of oral performance, this session invites poets and storytellers to share their own original work.

AbstractThis panel explores representations of Irishness in the 21st Century. From the Belfast Agreement and the “end” of the Northern Ireland Troubles to the Republic’s referenda on divorce, abortion, and marriage equality, the past 25 years present a dynamic and changing society on the island. Recalling Clare Connolly’s introduction to Ireland and Postcolonial Theory, in which she writes of instability of the “boundaries between past and present [...] memory and history, national and international,” this panel examines Irishness in relation to shifting global, political, and cultural contexts as they manifest in texts from the present and recent past in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Comparative Woman: Kin

Comparative Woman’s 2019 issue is looking for academic essays, poetry, art, interviews, and book reviews on our theme of “Kin.”

 

Theme: What is “kinship”? Is it merely biological or is it something that we choose? What are the bonds that we form? How do we form them? Why do we need these bonds? Why do these bonds matter? From Moms to Drag Mothers, covens to close-knit communities and cults, and siblings to fraternities: how do we recognize and establish “kin”?
