CALL FOR PAPERS

Canadian Journal of Irish Studies - Special Issue:  Irish-Canadian History and Literature

The interdisciplinary Canadian Journal of Irish Studies invites submissions for a special issue addressing themes in Irish-Canadian history and literature, broadly defined, in the nineteenth century and the twentieth century (scheduled to appear in 2005). Possible topics, very broadly defined, include (but are not limited to):

* comparative historical or literary work on Canadian and other areas of the Irish diaspora
* Cultural hybridity
* Globalisation and immigration in Canadian and/or Irish comparative perspective
* Irish-Canadian ethnicity and inter-cultural contact/conflict with other ethnic groups
* Irish-Canadian emigrant letters
* Irish-Canadian historiography
* Irish-Canadian literary history
* Irish-Canadian nationalism
* Irish-Canadian print or popular culture
* Post-colonial dimensions of Irish-Canadian culture
* Racialization of the Irish in Canada
* Regional historical and literary themes
* Trans-Atlantic historical and literary themes

Submitted essays should be up to approx. 6500 words in length (including notes etc.) and should follow either the MLA Style Sheet (literatures and languages) or the Chicago Manual of Style (other disciplines). The author's name should appear only on the cover sheet in order to facilitate blind vetting.

Please send two hard copies and one electronic copy (MS-Word or WordPerfect), by 1 August 2004, to the guest editors:
