The University of Sunderland
In Association with the North East Irish Culture Network
Fifth Annual Irish Studies Conference
9-11 November 2007
Ireland: At War and Peace
Following the success of its last four international conferences: Representing-Ireland: Past, Present and Future,  and The Word, The Icon and The Ritual, , Lands of Saints of Scholars, , and Ireland: Renaissance, Revolution and Regeneration, (2006) the University of Sunderland, in association with NEICN, is soliciting papers for an interdisciplinary conference, which will run from 9-11 November 2007. The conference will begin with a plenary lecture on Friday 9th November; there will be a book launch and wine reception in the evening and a ceilidh and conference banquet on Saturday 10th November.
The conference organisers hope to represent a wide range of approaches to Irish culture from academics and non-academics alike. Performances, roundtables, collaborative projects, and other non-traditional presentations are encouraged in addition to conference papers. We particularly welcome proposals for panels. As with previous year's conference, we welcome submissions for panels and papers under the thematic headings of: Ireland at War and Peace in the following areas: Literature, Performing Arts, History, Politics, Folklore and Mythology, Ireland in Theory, Gender and Ireland Anthropology, Sociology, Geography, Tourism, Art and Art History, Music, Dance, Media and Film Studies, Cultural Studies, and Studies of the Diaspora. North American and other international scholars, practitioners in the arts, and postgraduate students are all encouraged to submit proposals to the conference organisers. We also welcome proposals for papers in absentia for delegates who wish to pa!
rticipate but may find it difficult to attend the event.
Previous conferences have resulted in the publication of a selection of essays, and we hope to continue this with essays from this year's conference.
