CFP: [Romantic] Ireland And Romanticism

Thursday, December 6, 2007 - 2:19pm
Dr Jim Kelly

Despite the breadth of Irish artistic achievement across various media in
the decades surrounding the 1798 Rebellion and 1801 Act of Union, there is
still a comparative lack of sustained analysis of this foundational period
in Irish cultural history. While much critical work has been focused on
individual authors, there has, with notable exceptions, been little
cross-disciplinary work devoted to Irish writing and culture in the
‘Romantic’ period. In particular, Irish links with European literatures and
Irish language productions have been relatively neglected. This collection
seeks to redress this neglect and to complicate and extend our

Death is an arrival and a departure for the deceased, as well as for those left behind â€" who leave
one kind of life and arrive, like the dead, in uncharted territory. Culturally, we are awash in stories
of the dead, which signifies the desire to come to terms with death and loss as well as the refusal to
do so. We propose a seminar to investigate the various manifestations of death in narrative, from
corpses to caesuras, the death of the author to Diana Fuss’s conception of “last words,” and
surrealism’s exquisite corpses.
We are looking for submissions which address death and the bodily changes that accompany it from
