From The Book of Kells to the seaside ditty in Ulysses to the Abbey Theatre's Countess Cathleen, Ireland boasts a history replete with visual and performing arts. The Irish Studies permanent section of the M/MLA is soliciting proposals for conference papers that use critical methodologies to analyze artworks that appear in Irish novels, poems, and cinema, as well as essays that examine Irish plays and music (traditional, classical, and choral) and their subsequent performances. We seek papers that analyze any genre or time period and presentations that include images, film clips and sound files will be prioritized.
Please send 500 word abstracts with subtitle "M/MLA Irish" (along with brief CV) in message header by May 31st to: sophiadawn.christman-lavin@stonybrook.edu.
