The Global Irish Studies Centre, UNSW, is pleased to announce a major international conference for Irish Studies.

Based in Sydney, a city that was an 'end' for many generations of Irish emigrants, this twentieth conference of the Irish Studies Association of Australia and New Zealand welcomes proposals on all aspects of Irish Studies, but especially those that address the broad conference theme, 'The Ends of Ireland'.

The conference aims to interrogate the many implications and meanings of Ireland's 'ends', temporal, physical and theoretical.

The organisers welcome proposals for papers and panels on Irish Studies from across the arts, humanities and social sciences including, but not limited to, history, politics, literary studies, sociology, geography, film and media, cultural studies and anthropology. Comparative and crossover papers and panels, drawing on cognate areas and disciplines, are also encouraged.
