Under the umbrella of Change we envisage subthemes of creativity, rebirth, revolution, renewal, new departures, innovation and economics. Commemoration encompasses all the significant events in Ireland’s political, social and economic life and is particularly significant in 2016 when there is a spotlight on commemorating and celebrating the centenary of the Easter Rising; equally important are the events of the Great War. Community may include the diaspora, Irish language, religion, volunteerism, immigration, emigration, sport, cultural studies, literature, writing, music, dance and drama.
The conference is run under the auspices of the Irish Studies Association of Australia and New Zealand. It is sponsored by Flinders University and proceedings will take place at the university’s flagship city premises in Victoria Square, Adelaide – a superb central location with modern facilities.
Tuesday November 29 is a free day with talks and workshops throughout the day on the Irish language and Irish writing followed by an ISAANZ planning session at 3pm. After that, delegates, guests, including non-presenters, will be invited to participate in the wine-and-cheese Comhrá (Conversation), a very informal research round-up designed to give all attendees a brief insight into the wide scope of Irish Studies research currently being undertaken. Conference registration will open prior to this event, at 5pm.
Presentation of conference papers will take place between Wednesday 30 November and Friday 2 December.
A conference dinner is planned for the evening of Thursday 1 December. This will be held at Ayers House, 288 North Terrace, Adelaide in the Ballroom (designed by Irishman George Kingston, born in Bandon, Co. Cork).
