CFP: THE ANIMAL TROPE: IRISH AND GALICIAN RESPONSES

 CALL FOR PAPERS

  THE ANIMAL TROPE: IRISH AND GALICIAN RESPONSES

  Irish Centre for Galician Studies

  University College Cork

  Thursday 5th September 2019

  Following the success of the symposium ‘Ecocritical Encounters: Women
and Nature in Galician and Irish Cultural Production’ in 2017, the
Irish Centre for Galician Studies at University College Cork will host
another event related to ecocritical issues. The focus of this 
symposium
will be the complex nature of the relationship that often exists 
between
humans and animals, and how these interactions are reflected in Irish
and Galician cultural production. We encourage comparative views and
critical responses to environmental issues with particular emphasis on
animal studies and the representation of animals in Irish and Galician
literature, film, visual arts and other forms of cultural production.

  Please send your abstract (max. 200 words) for a 20-minute paper and a
brief biographical note to Dr Martín Veiga (m.veiga@ucc.ie) by
Wednesday 31st July 2019.

  Thematic areas may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  Animals and humans

  Animals and Irish culture

  Animals in Galician culture

  Ecocriticism and the animal turn

  Representation of animals in Irish and Galician cultural production

  Animals and animality
