‘Over the Irish Sea' is a symposium organised to share new research about literary conceptions of, and crossings of,
the Irish Sea in the modern period in Irish, English, Welsh, and Scottish literatures. The symposium will reflect on contemporary archipelagic and maritime methodologies in literary and cultural studies, and examine how such methodologies might re-orient and re-shape studies of the literatures of the British and Irish Isles.
Further details of the symposium can be found at www.overtheirishsea.org
