Special Issue: Reconsidering the Nineteenth Century

         The interdisciplinary *Canadian Journal of Irish Studies* invites
submissions for a special issue, "Reconsidering the Nineteenth Century"
(scheduled to appear at the end of 2004). Possible topics, very broadly
defined, include (but are not limited to):
         --nationalist movements that challenged the division of Ireland by
religious affiliation
         --reconsiderations of the effects, and causes, of the famines
         --Irish music after the Belfast Harper's Festival
         --religious debates within (rather than between) religious
communities (e.g., the Veto Controversy)
         --nineteenth-century Irish historiography
         --Irish influence outside of Ireland (through the circulation of
Irish culture, including translations, and/or the diaspora)
         --Irish literature's engagement with other national literatures
         --the Anglo-Irish gothic from Maturin to Stoker
         --the Irish periodical press
Submitted essays should be approx. 5000-6500 words in length (including
notes etc.) and should follow either the MLA Style Sheet (literatures and
languages) or the *Chicago Manual of Style* (other disciplines). The
author's name should appear only on the cover sheet in order to facilitate
blind vetting.
         Please send two hard copies and one electronic copy (MS-Word or
WordPerfect), by *15 February 2004*, to the guest editor:
