    “The New Irish”: Dundalk IT, 27-28 September 2007

    By Noreen Bowden | May 25, 2007

    “The New Irish” is the theme of the third annual conferrence of The Centre for the Study of Culture and Society in the Department of Humanities, Dundalk Institute of Technology.

    The conference will focus on questions about the Irish diaspora, immigration, young people, and¬†globalisation following Ireland’s change from a nation plagued by poverty and emigration to a booming, self-confident nation of immigration. Organisers say, “This conference hopes to open a dialogue on the identity and the representation of the ‘New Irish’.”

    They expect contributions from fields as diverse as “literature, literary theory, cultural studies, linguistics, film, media, visual arts, theatre, music, archaeology, history, geography, politics, economics, social policy, sociology and community studies”.
