The Irish Studies Program at Drew University is pleased to announce the Call For Papers for the Transatlantic Connections Conference V, which takes place in Ireland January 10-14 2018.
The theme of this year’s Transatlantic Connections Conference is “Kindred Spirits / Dáimh”. This theme will be explored across a range of interdisciplinary panels, workshops, keynote talks and cultural events. The Transatlantic Connections Conference will be an opportunity to explore cultures (broadly defined) and the interactions and intersections between them. The focus of the conference will be on cultures that are “outside the mainstream,” and the goal is to foster a sense of shared kinship and celebration amongst representatives of humanity’s cultural diversity.
Our conference model is different from most academic symposia.
Our panels are open to the public, and presenters include undergraduate and post-graduate students, academics, professionals and enthusiasts in a variety of cultural pursuits. This is a multidisciplinary conference, and papers are sought in the fields of History, Literature, Peace Studies, Architecture & Design, Minority Languages, Irish Language, Sustainability and Ecology, Cinema and Media, Sports & Leisure, Medical Humanities, Activism and Protest, Literature, Food Studies, and Music Studies.
