2017 SSNCI conference – Irish College, Leuven, Belgium, 29-30 June Figures of Authority in 19th-Century Ireland Website: https://ssnci2017.wordpress.com/ 19th-century Ireland witnessed both the restoration of older forms of authority (e.g. the re-establishment of the Catholic hierarchy) and the rise of figures who defined new models of authority (e.g. Daniel O’Connell).

Competing Traditions The 20th and 21st Century Irish Literatures between Realism and Experimentation 30 June-1 July 2017

June 30 - July 1

Geographies of Comparison: Ireland / Africa

July 6 - July 9

Geographies of Comparison: Ireland / Africa (ACLA 2017, Utrecht, July 6-9, 2017) Ireland was, as Robert Young writes, England’s first and always exceptional colony. But it was far from the only one. Its unique colonial status has yielded productive scholarship addressing its anomalous integration into the colonial world. While this scholarship has resulted in some excellent work on Ireland / India relations and an influential volume on the ‘green and black Atlantic’ that performed a valuable intervention in addressing the…
