Contemporary Issues in Irish Studies. In Memoriam Paul Brennan

Friday, February 14, 2014 - 3:44pm
full name / name of organization: 
Etudes Irlandaises/French Journal of Irish Studies

This special issue seeks to explore research topics dear to Prof. Paul Brennan (+…2003) who left such a mark in Irish Studies in France and in Europe – State-building, public policy, Church issues, the peace process in Northern Ireland, and cultural life, whilst not forgetting contemporary literature. Although it has a 20th-century focus, this issue also seeks to present directions in which scholarship in those topics has developed in the early 21st century, and invites submissions on those themes regardless of whether authors were acquainted with Prof. Paul Brennan.
