CfP: “EXCITING NEWS! Event, Narration and Impact from Past to Present”

The Irish Humanities Alliance (IHA), in collaboration with University College Cork, presents- “EXCITING NEWS! Event, Narration and Impact from Past to Present,” bringing together a broad range of current research in Ireland and abroad, regarding an issue of crucial importance for the understanding of past cultures and our own. The conference is organised in collaboration with the EURONEWS project, an IRC-funded effort to trace the concept and use of news back to the early modern origins, as Ireland became integrated within a European network of shared experiences. The conference will take place on 15-16 March 2021 (either virtually or socially distanced subject to government Covid-19 advice and regulations at that time).

Proposals should be emailed to Prof. Brendan Dooley b.dooley@ucc.ie by 5pm on Friday 30 October 2020. More details in the file enclosed.
