ACIS Meets in New Orleans

The theme for this conference is Erin at Home, Erin Abroad: Capturing the Irish Experience. The Irish diaspora to all corners of the globe over many centuries continues to engage scholars in diverse fields from history to literature to art and anthropology. This conference proposes to examine the varied experiences of the Irish and how they manifested themselves. More attention has been paid in recent years to the stories the Irish tell to themselves and to “others” and how outsiders have viewed the Irish. We would like scholars to consider how these expressions vary over time and place.

Along with papers specific to the conference theme, we are interested in using this conference to highlight the most recent work in the field. Therefore, we welcome submissions addressing any and all topics or themes relevant to Irish studies. Both individual paper and panel submissions (3-4 participants) are welcomed, as are proposals for presentations in non-traditional formats (posters, performances, exhibits). Proposals should be 250-500 words in length, and include a brief (~50 word) bio of the submitter or—in the case of panels—each participant.

Please send any questions to Laura D. Kelley, Ph.D. Tulane University.

Submissions are due September 30, 2011 to
