CfP: Ireland and Europe: Cultural and Literary Encounters

via Jonathan McCreedy

“Ireland and Europe: Cultural and Literary Encounters” is an international conference organised by the Department of English and American Studies. It is open to post-graduates and all academic specialists in the broad research field of Irish cultural, literary and linguistic studies.

The release of Bloomsbury’s 2013 ‘The Reception of British and Irish Authors in Europe’ series with its monographs devoted to Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift, and W.B Yeats continues a growing trend of research devoted to the impact that Irish culture and language makes in countries all across the European continent: East and West.

“Ireland and Europe: Cultural and Literary Encounters” is a further occasion to debate on “Ireland” within a European context. Our intention is to create a forum of discussion that puts no restrictions on academic approaches or methodologies.
Our plenary speaker is Jack Harte: renowned Irish author and founder of the Irish writer’s Union.

The conference will take place at Sofia University (Sofia, Bulgaria), on June 15-16. The deadline for the CfP is May 15.
