CfP: 2019 Conference of the International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures, Dublin, 22–26 July 2019

THE CRITICAL GROUND
The 2019 Conference of the International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures
22–26 July 2019 | Trinity College Dublin 
2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of IASIL (or IASAIL, the International Association for the Study of Anglo-Irish Literature, as it existed in its first incarnation). This anniversary presents an opportunity to consider the evolution of Irish literary and critical studies since the very first IASAIL conference, held in Trinity in the summer of 1970, and to assess the role of criticism in advancing this field of scholarship. The 2019 conference theme, ‘The Critical Ground’, is an invitation to reflect in the broadest possible terms on the critical traditions, interventions, controversies, and conversations which have shaped Ireland’s literature in both the Irish and English languages, and to chart the relationship between such critical engagement and Ireland’s wider political, cultural, and intellectual sphere.
