Institute of Irish Studies
Queen's University, Belfast

From plantations to Grattan's parliament, poitín distillers to the IMF bailout, the Irish have always had a fraught relationship with institutions of political, social and religious power. It raises questions surrounding the legitimacy of performative and systemic aspects of Irishness, which has been and continues to be in flux both north and south of the border.

CALL FOR PAPERS: The Nonhuman Turn in 21st Century Studies
Center for 21st Century Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
May 4-5, 2012

This conference takes up the "nonhuman turn" that has been emerging in the arts, humanities, and social sciences over the past few decades. Intensifying in the 21st century, this nonhuman turn can be traced to a variety of different intellectual and theoretical developments from the last decades of the 20th century:

The Global Checkpoint: 'Rights' of Passage, Performances of Sovereignty

updated: 
Sunday, September 25, 2011 - 3:23pm
ACLA - American Comparative Literature Association Convention, 2012; David A. Fieni, Karim Mattar (seminar organizers)

The checkpoint, a globally ubiquitous technology that administers space within states / colonies (e.g. Apartheid South Africa, Northern Ireland, the occupied West Bank), in warzones (Afghanistan, Iraq), and between states (India-Pakistan during Partition, East-West Berlin, US-Mexico), offers a precise and suggestive focal point for this concern.
