ABEI-Associação Brasileira de Estudos Irlandeses- XIII Symposium of Irish Studies in
In the context of the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Chilean independence signed by Bernardo O´Higgins in 1818, the opportunity for an Irish Studies Symposium in Chile emerges. There has been a growing interest on Irish studies in several Latin American countries, including Chile, and a parallel growing interest of the Irish Government in Latin America. The focus of the event will be on discussing the historical and contemporary connections between Chile, Ireland and other South American countries.
The symposium aims to gather a small group of researchers to discuss the main theme from different perspectives which will be expanded in the International Conference:
– Construction of a nation through its narratives
