Making Christian Landscapes in Atlantic Europe: Conversion and Consolidation in the Early Middle Ages

Landscapes across Europe were transformed, both physically and conceptually, during the early medieval period (c AD 400-1200), and these changes were bound up with the conversion to Christianity and the development of ecclesiastical power structures. Whilst Christianity represented a more or less common set of beliefs and ideas, early medieval societies were characterised by vibrant diversity: much can potentially be learned about these societies by comparing and contrasting how they adapted Christianity to suit local circumstances. This is the first book to adopt a comparative landscape approach to this crucial subject.

CFP: “Building a Nation: the Effects of Irish Nationalism on Traditional Dance, Music, and Lyric Poetry”

Conference: In Celebration of the 1916 Easter Rising: Art, Articulation, Inspiration 
A one-day conference on Friday, October 21, 2016, at Seton Hall University, South Orange NJ

Call for Papers
The Easter Rising had a dramatic effect on Irish culture, influencing the subject matter of traditional song—many of the haunting ballads that were composed shortly after the insurrection are still sung in Ireland today. Though less well known, the efforts of the Gaelic League and the Young Ireland movement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to promote folk dancing, lyric poetry and song as native to Ireland led to some of the most recognizable and popular forms of Irish artistic expression today. This panel seeks papers that look at the traditional dance, music, and poetry through the prism of Irish nationalism, as inspired by the Rising, its precedents, and its aftermath.

Please send proposals and 500-word abstracts to Marta Deyrup by August 1, 2016, at marta.deyrup@shu.edu

CFP: Women and the Rising

Call for Papers: Women and the Rising (Chair, Elizabeth Brewer Redwine, Department of English)
We are seeking papers for a panel entitled “Women and the Rising” as part of a conference, In Celebration of the 1916 Easter Rising: Art, Articulation, Inspiration, at Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ on October 21st, 2016. Stories of women’s involvement in the rising abound, but most focus on Constance Markievicz at Stephen’s Green, ignoring the many women who risked bullet-fire to bring messages, food, and medical care to the rebels. Recent scholarship on this topic by Lucy McDiarmid, Clair Wills, and the “Waking the Feminist” group is unearthing exciting new evidence of women’s active participation in Easter Week.
For this panel, papers are especially welcome that deal with both the famous women of the Rising and the lesser known female participants, such as Rose McNamara, Helena Molony, Winifred Carney, Julia Grenan, Margaret Kinnider, and Marie Perloz. Possible topics include women’s groups Inghinidhe na hEireann and Cumann na mBan, media representations of the women involved in the events of Easter Week, and links between the theatre world and the women of the Rising. Please email abstracts of approximately 500 words to Elizabeth.Redwine@shu.edu by August 1, 2016.

New Publication: Patching Peace: Women’s Civil Society Organising in Northern Ireland

Patching Peace raises key questions about the expectations placed on civil society organisations in the ongoing and complex processes of conflict transformation during the Good Friday Agreement period. Although the exclusion of women’s society organisations appears to “correct” historical gendered exclusion, this book demonstrates that such inclusion in officially delineated spaces is insufficient to ensure either women’s participation or a recognition of their contributions. Moreover, the involvement can be subject women’s civil society organisations to regimes of governmentality, shaped by persistent gender stereotypes.
