Irish Poetry After Heaney
Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre â€“ 16-17 December 2008
The Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre will convene its next colloquium on the
16th and 17th of December 2008 at Oxford Brookes University, Oxford.
Proposals are invited for papers on the theme of â€˜Irish Poetry After
Heaneyâ€™. Seamus Heaney is what might be termed a foundational figure in
modern Irish poetry. We are, therefore, interested in how contemporary
Irish poetry has developed within and/or away from Heaneyâ€™s poetic
shadow. Indicative themes for papers include: the region; urban Ireland;
violence; myth and orality; translation; diaspora; the Celtic Tiger and
globalization; popular culture; and poetic influence.
Proposals should be between 150-200 words and should be forwarded to
either Professor Steven Matthews â€“ sjmatthews_at_brookes.ac.uk or Dr EÃ³in
Flannery â€“ eflannery_at_brookes.ac.uk by 31st October 2008.
Plenary Speakers include: Lucy Collins (University College Dublin); John
McAuliffe (University of Manchester); and David Wheatley (University of
