Second and Final Call for Papers:
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.

From Selma to Stonewall: Intersectional Identities and LGBT Activism
Queer theory underscores the importance and history of intersectional identities in the LGBT movement as it pertains to race, gender, religion, class, immigration, disability, etc. We are looking for dynamic presenters who will offer case studies analyzing how outsider and mainstream art as well as grassroots and establishment political activism interrogates and employs intersectional identities to advance LGBT rights.
Submissions are being sought for a collection of essays tentatively titled All Things Arabia: Arabian Identity and Material Culture. The goal of this collection is twofold. First, we would like to challenge existing scholarship by Edward Said, Homi Bhabha, or Franz Fanon and, instead of looking at the other spaces of the Near Orient as the “great complementary opposite” of the West, to suggest new, more complex, and unbiased ways of understanding the cultural identity of the Arabian Peninsula through the things that stand for this place.
Material Culture, Labor and Childhood Identities
Blockchain technology offers many new opportunities for social and informational organisation. While most people equate the blockchain with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, the technology also has far broader applications in the financial sector, as well as land registration, voting, prediction markets, identity verification, smart contracts and any number of other domains where decentralized and transparent processes add value.
Edited collection on Black Mirror. (Deadline for abstracts/proposals January 31st 2018)

The international peer-reviewed journal South Asian Review (published by Taylor and Francis) invites submissions to a special issue revolving around “South Asian Graphic Narratives” for its Winter 2018 issue.
Culture, Theory and Critique invites original full-length article submissions for its upcoming open issues.
Culture, Theory and Critique is a refereed, interdisciplinary journal for the transformation and development of critical theories in the humanities and social sciences. It aims to critique and reconstruct theories by interfacing them with one another and by relocating them in new sites and conjunctures.
Nature, the landscape and the environment have enjoyed a recurrent presence, indeed have been constant protagonists, in Irish literature and culture.This wild isolated island, originally feared or even despised by foreigners progressively became that romanticized, pre-modern Arcadia imagined by tourists from the early twentieth century onwards. The once desolated and barren landscapes of the Great Hunger were imaginatively recreated as green pastures, nostalgically conjured up by nineteenth- and twentieth-century Irish emigrants across the world.
