会议名称:  American Conference for Irish Studies- Southern Region 08
会议时间:  2008-03-06
会议地点:  Savannah, Georgia, United States
会议主题:  Presentations should focus on any aspect of Irish Studies, but those that elaborate the theme, Ireland: Assent and Dissent, are especially encouraged.

American Conference for Irish Studies
On 17 June 1904, Molly Bloom reminisced, "yes I said yes I will Yes." Around eighty years later Ian Paisley protested, "Ulster Says No," a partial echo of "No Surrender" (the cry during the late-seventeenth-century Siege of Londonderry). Assertions of "yes" and "no"—and acts of assent and dissent—play prominently in Irish experience: past and present; at home and abroad. Our conference welcomes proposals on any aspect of Irish Studies, but it especially invites proposals that elaborate the theme,Ireland: Assent and Dissent.

Possible areas for consideration include, but are by no means limited to:

  • dissenting religious and political traditions within Ireland and its diaspora;
  • Theobald Wolfe Tone's ideal of "unit[ing] Protestant, Catholic and Dissenter under the common name of Irishmen";
  • endorsement and dissension in Irish literature, film-making, art, and historiography;
  • yes/no referenda on such issues as divorce, abortion, the Good Friday Agreement, and citizenship rights;
  • "sea" and "ní hea" in Irish-language writing and politics;
  • shifts from "no" to "yes" in Unionist and Republican rhetoric;
  • the reality or myth of "No Irish Need Apply";
  • Irish assent vis-à-vis economic, political, cultural, and military facets of Europeanization and globalization;
  • suspension of the GAA's ban on foreign games;
  • Irish utopias or "no-places."
