  • To be considered, essays must comply with the Australasian Journal of Irish Studies style guide:
  • Essays must be 6000-8000 words in length (including endnotes).
  • The Editors’ decisions are final.

Due Date: 16 March 2015

We hope you can circulate this announcement as widely as possible to any MA or PhD students who might be interested in submitting a 6000 word article for consideration.
