Irish Seminar 2015

Location: Buenes Aires



Peripheral Modernities? Ireland, Argentina, Latin America

27th June – 11th July 2015

IDES, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Under the direction of Diarmuid Ó Giolláin, the Irish Seminar will explore Irish Studies in a non-Anglophone and a global context.  The project is not comparative for its own sake, but seeks to ask new questions about Ireland and Irish Studies in the world by looking at parallels with Argentina (and indeed with Latin American Studies). We also wish to explore aspects of the Irish experience specific to Argentina – Irish emigration to the region, the Irish community there, the reception of Irish literature in this part of the southern hemisphere. We hope that our stay in this dynamic and sophisticated metropolis will challenge our notion of Irish Studies.
