We look forward to welcoming you to University College Cork for our 59th annual conference.
This year's conference will be our largest yet, with up to ten parallel sessions. We are pleased to announce plenary lectures by Sarah Kay (New York University), Martin Crowley (University of Cambridge), and Éric Fassin (Université Paris 8 Saint-Denis). We will also be hosting a roundtable discussion on 'Crisis: the state of French studies', to be chaired by Patrick O'Donovan, with short papers from Janice Carruthers (Queen's Belfast, AHRC), Neil Kenny (Oxford, British Academy) and Patrick Crowley (University College Cork), and with Claire Gorrara (Cardiff University) responding.
A number of special events for postgraduate students are planned, and travel grants are available: further information about these opportunities is available here.
