Marginal Irish Modernisms

Marginal Irish Modernisms academic events

Three linked academic events

The AHRC phase of the Marginal Irish Modernisms project comprises three linked academic events, one in each of the partner institutions. Colleagues in academic and arts-related fields are welcome to attend these events. If you would like to attend an event, please contact the organiser for the relevant event to ensure you secure a place. Speakers for the two colloquia will be by invitation only, so there is no call for papers. There will be a general call for papers for the Liverpool conference in early 2016.

Rethinking the Paradigm

Rethinking the theoretical and historical contours of Irish Modernism

  • When: 6th - 7th November 2015
  • Where: St Mary’s University, London

How has the relationship between modernity, modernisation and Modernism traditionally been conceptualised, and how may we begin to re-theorise it within an Irish political / cultural framework? How was the Modernism / nationalism relationship organised during the period in question, and how has it been managed in subsequent critical debate? How did contemporary aesthetic debates engage with other key components of cultural identity – in particular, class and gender?

Marginal Cultural Modernisms

Rethinking the generic and disciplinary inheritance of Irish Modernism

  • When?  27th - 28th March 2016
  • Where? Trinity College, Dublin

Removed from the pervasive influence of W.B. Yeats and James Joyce, how may we rethink the confluence of modern Irish art and the phenomenon of international Modernism? Six leading figures from the field of Irish Modernist studies will address this question, whilst also looking to engage with a range of figures from cognate fields such as painting, art music, philosophy and social theory.

If you would like to attend this event, please contact Dr Tom Walker to book a place.
