Change, Commemoration, Community

EXTENDED submission deadline: Friday 24 June 2016
2016 Australasian Irish Studies Conference

29 November – 1 December 2016, Flinders University, Adelaide

Under the umbrella of Change the conference organisers 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.
