Irish Time? Temporalities in Irish Literature and Culture

Irish Time? Temporalities in Irish Literature and Culture
Symposium at Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute, Trinity College Dublin, and Global Brain Health Institute, Trinity College Dublin

Convenors: Martin Middeke (University of Augsburg) and Christopher Morash (Trinity College Dublin)

At 2:00 a.m., Sunday, 1 October, 1916, Irish time changed.
This conference proposes a new “reckoning with time” in the field of Irish Studies, taking into account culturally specific forms of experiences of time and temporality in an Irish context that we might call “Irish time” and also go beyond such.

Professor Luke Gibbons – “Temporal Powers”: Narrative, Foreboding, and Interwar Fiction
Professor Claire Connolly – Lane-ism: Trollope’s Irish Roads in Time and Space
Time on our Hands, a poetry reading by Gerald Dawe (6pm, October 12th)
Time Machine, a performance by Roger Doyle (6pm, October 13th)
