Call for Papers Deadline: 20 January 2017
Canadian Association for Irish Studies
Connections and Reconnections in Irish Studies
Annual Conference, 27-30 June 2017 – Ulster University, Magee Campus, Derry, UK
CAIS conferences are wide-ranging interdisciplinary events which provide an exciting meeting place for scholars, artists, writers, and performers. In 2017 the conference is coming to the historic plantation city of Derry in Northern Ireland. A major Atlantic Port, Derry was the point of embarkation for many thousands of Irish emigrants heading to colonial North America before the 19th century.
Yet it retained strong Canadian connections after that.
Confirmed Keynote Speakers:
Professor Donald Harman Akenson, Queen’s University, Canada,
Professor Danine Farquarson, Memorial University, Canada
Professor Margaret Kelleher, University College Dublin
Professor Máirín Nic Eoin, Dublin City University.
The conference will feature a walking tour of the city walls, music, drama, and recitals.
We will complete the events with a gala dinner in the heart of the historical walled city of Derry.
Venue: Ulster University, Magee Campus, Derry
Date: 27-30 June, 2017
