IASIL Bibliography Committee 2012

IASIL Bibliography for 2011 

The IASIL Bibliography Committee is again compiling a list of publications on Irish literature, language and culture from around the world, which will be published in the 2012 Autumn/Winter issue of the Irish University Review.

Guidelines for contributors  

  • Anyone writing on Irish literatures, language and culture is invited to submit bibliographical details of their publications either to the representative in his/her country (see list below), or if there is no representative, to the Chair of the Bibliography Committee, Beatriz Kopschitz Bastos– - Submissions should be made by 30 April 2012 on work published in 2011.
  • What to report on: books and articles (either in journals or in collections of essays, conference papers and the like) on individual Irish writers and on Irish literatures and theatre more generally. For the ‘General Studies’ section, items of a general cultural nature can also be listed on language, film, folklore, etc.
  • The ‘General Studies’ section has several subsections: (a) Literature (b) Theatre (c) Language and Culture (d) Irish-related work by non-Irish writers. You might indicate in which subsection your entry should be placed
  • Any studies of the literature of the Irish diaspora, either in general terms or on specific authors, are welcome.
  • Items on Irish-related work by English writers, such as Spenser, Trollope, Thackeray, Arnold, are welcome. Rather than being listed under the writer’s name in the ‘Individual Authors’ section, they will be included in section (d) in ‘General Studies’. Irish diaspora works will also be included in this subsection.
  • Book reviews can be included if regarded as significant and extensive. An indication of word length would be 3000+ words. A brief note justifying the inclusion of a book review would be welcomed by the editor or country representative.
  • What not to report on: historical, geographical and sociological articles and books, unless there’s a significant literary or cultural angle; also translations of Irish novels, plays, collections of poetry into other languages, unless there is an introduction and/or notes, commentary etc.
  • Any articles or books missed from the Bibliography in previous years can be included. Just give the year of publication if not 2011.
  • Commonly-accepted abbreviations such as PMLA, ELH, IUR, E-I, plus OUP, CUP, and more generally UP after any university press are acceptable.
  • Proof read all items carefully: author’s name, title of article or book, publication details. Take care particularly with diacritical marks. The representative to whom you send information or the editor may be able to correct errors, but don't depend on that. What you send may go unaltered into the published list.
  • If you need guidance on how to present details of publications, please refer to the IUR 41:2, Autumn/Winter, 2011.
