Our Roots Travel Widely: Irish Poetry Beyond Regionalism and Nationalism

Linen Hall Library 17 Donegall Square North, Belfast, United Kingdom

This symposium will explore mid-century Irish poetry’s rich web of affiliations, reconceptualising the period from Partition to the Troubles by bringing to light forgotten cross-border collaborations, transnational connections, feminist, ecocritical, socialist, and working-class perspectives. Led by Dr Gail McConnell (Queen’s University Belfast) and Dr Karl O’Hanlon (Maynooth University), this symposium is the second public event of ‘Irish Poetry Beyond Regionalism and Nationalism’, a two-year project funded by the Higher Education Authority under the North-South Research Programme of the Shared Island Initiative. Dr Lucy Collins, Associate Professor in the School of English, Drama and Film at University College Dublin, will deliver the keynote lecture.
