CALL FOR PAPERS

2009 MLA Convention, Philadelphia
Modern Language Association (MLA) / ACIS (American Conference for Irish
Studies)

The American Conference for Irish Studies will host the following panel at
the December 2009 MLA convention in Philadelphia. Please send 200-word
abstracts to Ellen Crowell (crowelle_at_slu.edu) by March 15, 2009. All
panelists must be registered MLA members by April 1st, 2009 to be included
on the Philadelphia conference program; all panelists must also be
registered ACIS members.

IRISH TEMPORALITIES
This panel will explore how changing representations of time anticipated
and responded to the rise of the Irish nation-state. To what extent did
the Celtic Twilight underwrite, or disable, the emerging free-state of the
early twentieth century? What does the representational rise of the
"Celtic Tiger," or Ireland's recent economic resurgence, say about the
persistence of popular images of the Irish past, or about their
supplantation? We welcome papers on any genre or literary period in
keeping with a broad exploration of how conceptions of past, present, and
future shape and are shaped by Irish literary endeavors.

SEND 200-WORD PROPOSALS BY MARCH 15, 2009. PRESENTATIONS MAY NOT EXCEED 20
MINUTES.
