Our conference welcomes proposals on any aspect of Irish Studies, but
it especially invites proposals that elaborate the theme, Ireland:
Assent and Dissent.

Possible areas for consideration include, but are by no means limited
to:

dissenting religious and political traditions within Ireland and its
diaspora; Theobald Wolfe Tone's ideal of "unit[ing] Protestant, Catholic
and Dissenter under the common name of Irishmen"; endorsement and
dissension in Irish literature, film-making, art, and historiography;
yes/no referenda on such issues as divorce, abortion, the Good Friday
Agreement, and citizenship rights; "sea" and "ní hea" in Irish-language
writing and politics; shifts from "no" to "yes" in Unionist and
Republican rhetoric; the reality or myth of "No Irish Need Apply"; Irish
assent vis-à-vis economic, political, cultural, and military facets of
Europeanization and globalization; suspension of the GAA's ban on
foreign games; Irish utopias or "no-places." Contact:
