2017 Annual Conference

Royal Irish Academy and Trinity College Dublin

Proposals are invited for twenty-minute papers (in English or Irish) on any aspect of eighteenth-century Ireland, including its history, literature, language, and culture. There is no specific conference theme for the conference in 2017 (which is running in parallel with Swift350) but proposals for papers and panels on the following topics will be particularly welcome: eighteenth-century Dublin and its economy, politics, manuscript and print culture; the history of Ireland’s religious denominations and its popular religious cultures; the characterisation of eighteenth-century Ireland as kingdom, colony or something else. The joint conference will feature keynote addresses from Professor Moyra Haslett (Queen’s University Belfast), Professor Ian McBride (University of Oxford), Dr Mary-Ann Constantine (University of Wales) and Professor James Woolley (Lafayette College). Proposals should be submitted by e-mail to Eoin Magennis (e.magennis@ulster.ac.uk)before Friday 3 March 2017. Proposals should include: name, institutional affiliation, paper title, and a 250-word abstract. Prospective speakers will be notified of a decision by Friday 24 March 2017.

We particularly welcome proposals from postgraduate students and there are a limited number of bursaries available for attendance at the conference. In order to be considered for a bursary, students should include with their proposal a statement of how attendance at the conference will help further their academic career and a CV including the name and contact details of a referee.
