EFACIS Conference 2017: A CORUÑA

Translocation: Pathways in Irish Studies   31st Aug - 3rd Sept 2017

First Call for Papers

Whither Irish studies? Where are we and where are we going? With scholars from every continent in universities all over the world, Irish studies is a multidisciplinary field which has expanded well beyond its initial home, geographically in Irish, British and American universities, and academically, in historical and literary studies. Irish studies flourishes in academic institutions from Beijing to Buenos Aires, from Mumbai to Moscow, and in a varied and expanding range of disciplines, including politics and sociology, musical studies, film and media studies, the visual and plastic arts, and sports studies, to name but a few. Translocation, defined as the act, process, or an instance of changing location or position, seems a fitting umbrella title to embrace the multiple themes which will be under discussion at the EFACIS Conference 2017, to be held in the beautiful Galician coastal city of A Coruña. This conference aims to be a celebration of all these different pathways in the vast field of Irish Studies and to debate the present and future of the field, with academics, experts and administrators from a variety of different academic and geographical background, while attempting to showcase the wealth and breadth of research being undertaken throughout the world.
