Comhfhios Boston College
The Irish Studies Doctoral Students of Boston College, in conjunction with the Center for Irish Programs, are pleased to launch Comhfhios Boston College, an annual conference emphasizing new theories, new media, and innovative approaches to Irish Studies. Comhfhios, meaning “knowledge together” or “open to all knowledge,” invites emerging scholars in Irish Studies to gather in Boston, share research projects, and generate new discourses within the discipline. This year will focus on the concept of “Living Irishness”: topics can include pop culture, cross-culture, new materialisms, the everyday, and representations of what it means to live or perform Irishness. Featuring a keynote address by Angela Bourke (Irish, Celtic Studies and Folklore, UCD) and a presentation by Richard Kearney (Philosophy, BC), the day-long event will also include a panel presentation and a “unconference” roundtable. Comhfhios Boston College will conclude with a reception and special performance.
Saturday, February 24 at 10:00am to 5:00pm
