New Horizons / Old Barriers in 21st Century Ireland

6th EFACIS CONFERENCE
European Federation of Associations and Centres of Irish Studies

University of Seville, Spain
13-15 December 2007

CALL FOR PAPERS
As Walter Benjamin wrote, “Every age not only dreams the next but, while
dreaming, it impels it toward wakefulness”. Since the last decade of the 20th
century, both Northern Ireland and the Republic have undergone great changes,
and the traditional images of underdevelopment, isolation, sectarianism or
violence have been progressively wiped out. Now, at the dawn of the 21st
century, we intend to test the “New Horizons” that have been / will be opened
in the social, cultural, political and economic spheres, and at the same time
to check whether or not the “Old Barriers” have been erased. This covers not
only a multi-faceted analysis of contemporary Ireland but also the revision
and/or recognition of previous ages, movements or figures that, while dreaming
the future, have led the island to its present situation. Contributions are
invited to explore this issue from an interdisciplinary point of view,
involving literature and the social sciences, the media, the visual arts,
music, history, as well as literary translation and film studies .

OFFICIAL LANGUAGE: English is the official language of the Conference, but
papers in Spanish will also be accepted.

LENGTH: Papers should not exceed 2,500-3,000 words / 20 minutes’ delivery.
