Irish Colloquium

This Saturday sees the return of the Boston College Irish Studies Colloquium in Connolly House, with over thirty faculty from a dozen local colleges discussing literature, history, music and the visual arts. The colloquium has a broad focus with wide appeal: expect presentations on, for example, Yeats, Joyce, Bowen, Heaney, on recent historicism, the authenticity of modernism, and contemporary visual art. In addition, Vera Kreilkamp, editor of √Čire-Ireland, will answer questions on publishing in Irish journals today, and John Paul Riquelme will bring along his second pass proofs of his forthcoming edition of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. The main speaker is historian L. Perry Curtis Jr. More information from Joe Nugent,, or by clicking on this link.
