Varieties of Irishness
The International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures invites you
to attend the 2007 conference at University College Dublin. The Conference
theme is designed to highlight the diversity which has always been at the
heart of Irish writing and to accommodate the widespread interests of IASIL

The Conference activities will take place on the extensive campus of
University College Dublin located at Belfield, Dublin, 4, four miles from
the city centre. The conference activities will chiefly take place in the
Global Irish Institute Building near the entrance to campus; the closing
dinner will be held in the O'Reilly Hall. Accommodation choices will include
five-star student accommodation in the Glenomena Residences and the Montrose
Hotel beside the campus, which will be offering a special rate to delegates.

Proposals for papers of twenty minutes' duration (i.e. papers that, when
completed, will be approx. 2,800 words in length) are welcome on any aspect
of the literatures of Ireland, especially those on the conference theme.
