CFP: Networks and Connections. Annual Conference of the French Society for Irish Studies (SOFEIR)

17/03/2017 - 18/03/2017


17-18 March 2017, University of Caen

The concept of networks derives from the image of a net, i.e. a set of intertwined lines, an image that has been applied to many different fields over time: the textile industry, anatomy, military fortifications, topography, economic geography, etc. In the 19th century the word acquired a sociological meaning, to indicate a group of people and institutions linked to each other in multiple ways and forming a system of exchange. Today the social media play an increasingly important role in cultural, political and social life. The notion of networks can thus help to better understand the complexity of social, economic and political phenomena, as well as that of literary, textual and linguistic phenomena.

Proposals for workshops or panels are welcome, as well as proposals from doctoral students.

Proposals for papers (together with a short biodata) are to be sent by 15 January 2017 to Christophe Gillissen (convener):
