Conference—Hybrid Irelands: At Culture's Edge

Location: McKenna Hall

This is a graduate student conference exploring the relationship between hybridity and Irish literature.

In recent literary and cultural analyses, Ireland’s unique relation to various notions of hybridity has been given preliminary consideration. Whether pertaining to genres and styles, discourses and disciplines, or identities and influences, it has become apparent that a defining feature of many Irish works is their resistance to traditional, narrow categorization.

In an attempt to expand upon these earlier approaches, the Keough-Naughton Institute at the University of Notre Dame will be holding a three-day graduate-student conference to address the relationship between hybridity and Irish literature, with a special focus on texts from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries.

The conference will run from March 29, 2012, until March 31, 2012.
