It is a truth universally acknowledged that Ireland is a land of pastoral greenery, but its landscape is an arguably ‘unnatural’ construct, a topography shaped by a history of conflict and suffering. Gerry Smyth asserted in 2000 that ‘Irish Studies and ecocriticism ... have a lot to say to each other’, yet despite the centrality of the land to Irish identity at home and abroad, ecocriticism remains largely absent from Irish Studies in Ireland.

[UPDATE] “Catastrophe and the Cure”: The Politics of Post-9/11 Music (Deadline July 1, 2009)

full name / name of organization: 
Anthology Theorizing Post-9/11 Music
contact email: 
post911anthology@gmail.com

In current debates about the War in Iraq, it has become commonplace for politicians and journalists to conjure the specter of the Vietnam War as a means of quantifying the impact of the current war in American culture and throughout the world. Surprisingly, though, few have scrutinized these comparisons to examine the differences between the popular music of the Vietnam era and the music of the current post-9/11 era. While the Vietnam era found countless bands and musicians responding in protest to that war, there has arguably been a significantly smaller amount of contemporary musicians who have taken overt stances, in their music, about the politics of post-9/11 life, in America and elsewhere.

_“Catastrophe and the Cure”: The Politics of Post-9/11 Music_ is the title of a proposed anthology examining “post-9/11” music. Abstracts are sought for articles attempting to theorize what post-9/11 music is, if such a category can be said to exist, and what political action it takes (or needs to take), if any. Proposed articles should be theoretically engaged and should be written with an academic readership in mind. Of particular interest are abstracts that seek to extend discussions of post-9/11 music beyond the bands/musicians/albums—U2, _The Rising_, The Dixie Chicks, Toby Keith, etc.—typically associated with 9/11.
We are especially interested in abstracts on the work of underrepresented groups, such as non-white, LGBT, female, non-western, etc. bands and musicians. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:
