Countdown until Irish Bodies and Irish Worlds

Description:

Irish Bodies and Irish Worlds

The Canadian Association for Irish Studies 2019 Conference
Hosted by the School of Irish Studies
Concordia University

Bodies – the human body, textual bodies, bodies of knowledge, bodies of water – are central to the numerous disciplines that form Irish Studies. Knowledge about Irish identities has been embodied through physical performance, articulated through literary and cultural bodies of work, and imagined as watery avenues of migration, exile, and diaspora. In turn, these bodies operate in, are influenced by, and also influence in their own right the world around them. The built environment, the natural world, fictional literary worlds, the transatlantic diaspora – all become ways to deconstruct and add nuance to multiple meanings of Irishness in a globalized society. Confirmed keynote speakers for CAIS 2019 are Professor Joanna Bourke (Birkbeck, University of London), Professor Rónán McDonald (University of Melbourne), Professor Rhona Richman Kenneally (Concordia University), award-winning author Kevin Barry, and Olivia Smith, co-editor of Winter Papers. The conference programme features an exclusive film preview, public readings, a special lecture and exhibit at the Jewish Public Library and a gala banquet in Old Montreal.
