Conference: Irish Religious Diasporas from the 17th to the 21st century, 17-18 June 2021

On 17-18 June 2021, the GIS EIRE is coordinating a conference on Irish religious diasporas. GIS EIRE facilitates cooperation between universities in a particular research area. Accordingly, three Irish Studies colleagues from the universities of IT Tallaght (Ireland), Lille (France) and Caen, France, decided to bring together their ideas and research interests in Irish religious history and imagined this 2021 GIS EIRE conference which will be specifically dedicated to the theme of the Irish religious diaspora. With our panelists, we intend to outline and explore this area for the first time with the transdisciplinary insights of international scholars from Irish Studies, History, Literature, Diasporic Studies, Ecclesial History and Missiology.
