Irish Society, History and Culture: 100 Years After 2016

Picture description

The conference aims to bring together distinguished scholars and younger researchers from cultural studies, history, literature, linguistics, political science and sociology. In organising this international conference we seek to contribute to the further development of an international network of scholars working on Irish studies and to promote the publication of outputs such as co-edited books or special issues of international journals. For those speakers interested in such a publication, information will be given by the Organizing Committee during the conference.

The conference will feature keynote speeches from internationally-renowned scholars
