VI AEDEI Conference
contact email: 

VI International Conference of The Spanish Association for Irish Studies
University of Valladolid (Spain)
25-27 May 2006

[Updated information: extended deadline (1 March 2006 ) and web page]

The theme of the 2006 AEDEI Conference is "Imaginary/Real Ireland". Few
places have been imagined and dreamed of as Ireland has. Ireland's
multi-faceted, shifting reality down through history can be viewed from a
variety of angles: the magical and visionary traditions, the nostalgic
Ireland(s) of the diasporic memory, the sense of bilocation derived from
 imagined/real frontiers, the post-colonial reversal of stereotypical roles
or the preference of story-telling to history. Where does the real Ireland
lie hidden in the new hybrid, multicultural Irish society, both north and
south of the Border? Is there a real Ireland at all? Contributions are
invited to explore these two separate yet intermixed levels of the real and
the imaginary in Ireland from an interdisciplinary point of view, involving
the social sciences, the media, the visual arts, music, history or literary
and film studies.

Official language: English is the official language of the Conference, but
papers in Spanish will also be accepted.
Length: Papers should not exceed 2,500-3,000 words / 20 minutes' delivery.
Publication: Complete texts must be submitted before the conference. Two
hard copies of your contribution -which must conform to the AEDEI style
sheet (http://aedei.en.eresmas.com/aedei1024/home.htm)- and a disk in Word
