ACIS Logo Special Issue, American Journal of Irish Studies, Sustainability in Irish Culture

We call for broad interdisciplinary proposals that critically address the theme, are historically aware yet future-oriented, and sensitive to heritage conservation and cultural practice. We particularly invite works that consider how organizations and governmental policy intersect with media and communication, arts and culture, education, architecture, agriculture, tourism, heritage, or language issues. We also invite proposals that critically challenge the viability of the concept “sustainability.” We especially welcome under-represented disciplinary approaches in the field of Irish Studies, including from the sciences and social sciences, and are open to multidisciplinary and multi-modal approaches that will engage audiences beyond academia through a public humanities model.

The editors hope to include traditional, peer-reviewed articles of approximately 6,000 to 10,000 words alongside multi-modal and multi-disciplinary elements. We also welcome other material including visual and documentary art and interactive work. Thus, we invite 250-500 word proposals for work that will be curated online on a new web platform alongside visual art, illustrations, visual data, photography, sound and video recordings, or other auditory or visual media.

Initial abstracts are due Aug. 15, 2024. Full contributions are due Jan. 15, 2025.
