Film Studies at University College Cork invites the submission of abstracts for a major conference titled “Ireland and Cinema: Culture and Contexts”. The three-day international conference will take place from Thursday April 18 to Saturday April 20, occurring during Ireland’s 2013 presidency of the EU.
The conference will facilitate discussions, presentations and debates across a wide spectrum of subjects in the broadest definition of the field of “Ireland and Cinema”. The programme hopes to schedule one keynote presentation and one specialist panel each day; the latter comprising an expert in a given field who will make a presentation and then lead a discussion among delegates.
Specialists who have already agreed to give keynote addresses include: Dr Ruth Barton (TCD) and Prof. Brian McIlroy (UBC)
Further details of participants will be confirmed in a renewed call for papers on Tuesday May 1.
Abstracts of approximately 250 words are invited on or before Thursday August 31, and confirmation of acceptance will be posted on Thursday November 1.
Submitted abstracts should be accompanied by a brief biography, details of institutional affiliation, as well as email and other relevant contact information.

• Filmmakers & Performers
• The Irish Language
• Film & History: representations and archives
• Characterisation: class, creed, gender, ethnicity
• Places & Spaces, Home & Abroad
