Interrogating Irish Identity

Guest Author - Mary Ellen Sweeney

Trinity College Dublin has posted a call for papers on “Affecting `Irishness’: Mutability, Nationality & Writing “The Green.” This is being called an interrogation of notions of Irishness. What’s this about?

Questioning Irishness in literature, cultural, and academic contexts in the English Department at Trinity…

The request goes out for papers that will examine the “recent postcolonial re-imaginings of Ireland.”

Affecting 'Irishness' intends to reimagine the possibilities surrounding Irishness by reappraising the many attributions accorded to Irish distinctiveness, by reassessing international conversations concerning Irish cultural presences, and by reasserting indigenous presence within the contemporary context.

Papers and/or panel proposals that examine all aspects of identity, culture and Diaspora as they inform the dialogue surrounding Irishness are welcome. The following areas of study, or any related areas, shall be considered: Twenty-first century Irishness; Irish-American Identities; Pandemic Irishness; Cultural Constructions of Race and Nationality; Images of the Diaspora; Representations of Irishness: Past/Present/Future; Irish Notions of Place and Identity in a New World Order; Post-colonial Theory and Irishness; Irishness and the Body.

The conference will take place January 13 & 14, 2006 in University of Dublin, Trinity College. Inquiries should be addressed to: Dr Jim Byrne c/o School of English, Trinity College, University College Dublin, Belfield, Dublin 4, Ireland; nyhanbyrne@yahoo.com
