The Antipodes, the opposite, figuratively, geographically, metaphorically.
We are interested in foregrounding the role of Irish women and men of the Antipodes and beyond: newly discovered stories and stories seen in a new light. We are also interested in a broad interpretation of ‘the Antipodes’ and we aim for a multidisciplinary focus, including the creative arts.
The conference will be held in Adelaide, South Australia, where 2019 celebrates 125 years of women’s suffrage.
The conference is run under the auspices of the Irish Studies Association of Australia and New Zealand (ISAANZ).
