The Newberry Seminar in Irish Studies

“Hibernia siue Irlanda insula maxima inter Brittanniam & Hispaniam,” by Ferrando Bertelli, 1560.

The Newberry Scholarly Seminars Series is pleased to announce our new Irish Studies Seminar, beginning in academic year 2019-2020.

Call for Proposals

Submission Deadline: Monday, June 3, 2019

The Newberry Irish Studies Seminar provides a forum to further understanding of Irish culture both nationally and globally by bringing together scholars from across this methodologically varied discipline. We welcome papers that address a wide range of topics pertaining to Ireland, including but not limited to memory, diaspora, religion, class relations, emigration and immigration, social movements and activism, culture, politics, gender and sexuality, violence, medicine and health. We are particularly interested in works that feature new or novel approaches to Irish Studies and which focus on underrepresented aspects of Irish culture, literature, or history.

This seminar is free and open to faculty members, independent scholars, graduate students, and interested members of the public. Each session features a work in-progress paper that will be pre-circulated electronically. The group will meet four times in AY 2019-2020, time and date TBD. All meetings will take place at the Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois.

To submit a proposal, please visit our webform and upload a one-page proposal, a statement explaining the relationship of the paper to your other work, and a brief CV. Applications will not be accepted via email.

If you have questions, please contact seminar co-coordinators, Keelin Burke, the Newberry, Bridget English, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Colleen English, Loyola University.
