Call for Submissions: American Journal of Irish Studies Volume 13, 1916 and Its Aftermath

Call for Submissions:
American Journal of Irish Studies, Volume 13, Fall 2016/Spring 2017

The American Journal of Irish Studies (AJIS) welcomes submissions for a Fall 2016/Spring 2017 special issue entitled “1916 and Its Aftermath.” Since fall of 2015 Glucksman Ireland House NYU, home of AJIS, has been engaged in a year-long program of research, publication and public programming dedicated to shedding new light on the context of the Easter 1916 Rising. In keeping with this commemorative agenda, AJIS editors will devote Vol. 13 as a special issue examining the impact and reverberations of Easter 1916 both in Ireland and beyond. The editors seek papers that take on any aspect of the impact of the events of 1916 through literature, history, arts and culture and contemporary issues. Given Glucksman Ireland House NYU’s focus on American and global Irish communities, editors are especially, although not exclusively, keen on diasporic lenses on topics related to 1916 and its political and cultural aftermath. Professor Joe Lee will be advisory editor of the volume.

The deadline for submissions, which should be between 6,000 and 8,000 words, is 1 March 2016.

All submissions will be subject to peer review. All submissions should adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style, see the AJIS Style Sheet: irelandhouse.fas.nyu.edu/docs/CP/4030/AJIS-StyleSheet.pdf.

Please send your submissions electronically to ireland.house@nyu.edu.
