deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2017

In her poem, "The Lost Land," Eavan Boland declares that  

 . . . memory itself  
has become an emigrant  
wandering in a place  
where love dissembles itself as landscape.  

From Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels to Colm Toibin's Brooklyn, Irish literature has always been especially concerned with travel, migration, and the fluidity of national boundaries. This panel seeks papers that examine migration, immigration, diaspora, and displacement in Irish texts.
