So—satire is no more—I feel it die—
No Gazetteer more innocent than I—
And let, a’ God’s name, every fool and knave
Be graced through life, and flattered in his grave.

Irreconcilable differences? Peace and Conflict in Irish Literature, Culture, and Politics. 10th Biennial Conference of the Nordic Irish Studies Network (Kristiansand, Norway, 3-4 May 2018)

Irish Studies is a contested field. Much of this can be construed as a healthy sign of differences of opinion or approach, but dissension can also be the source of weakening fragmentation and waste. This conference wishes to address notions of peace and conflict in a constructive manner, in a way that crosses the disciplines of Irish Studies.
