‘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
