CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS ON "THE NEW IRISH"
Over the past decade, Ireland has been significantly transformed by
social, economic and cultural developments. This upcoming issue of
Etudes Irlandaises will attempt to define, analyse and evaluate these
changes from a resolutely contemporary perspective, focusing on the
men, women and children who are the actors and products of these
changes and who embody them - or distinguish themselves from them -

The new generation: "The Pope's Children" and the "Hi Cos" (Hibernian
A new generation in Northern Ireland and the legacy of the conflict;
New migrants to Ireland;
Branding a new Irish identity (adaptation and crisis,
majority/minorities, towards an Irish brand of multiculturalism?...);
Ireland and globalisation;
Questioning and theorising the New Ireland: postmodernity and
postnationalism, consumption, abundance and property, resistance to
change and reaffirmation of traditions, new or persistent social and
Representing the New Irish: representational strategies in
contemporary visual arts, literature and the media;
New trends in Irish art, architecture and urban design;
Utopias and dystopias: nostalgia for a vanishing Ireland, old and
new landscapes, public and private space, museums and memory;
The politics of remembrance: coming to terms with Ireland's artistic,
literary and historical heritage:
- Recycling: material culture and kitsch,
- Representing Ireland abroad,
- Representing the 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland;
New Irish readers: contemporary children's literature and
representations of children in contemporary Irish writing.
