MÍCHEÁL Ó CLÉIRIGH INSTITUTE 8TH DONATUS MOONEY SEMINAR: ‘BEGGING, WRITING AND THINKING’
22 May, 12.15 – 17.00, Room K114, Newman Building, UCD, Belfield
The FMRSI will again sponsor a session at the annual meeting of the Irish Conference of Medievalists, scheduled for 1-3 July 2015. We held a very successful session last year, our first foray at the ICM, and were so delighted that one of the papers at our session, by Emma Anderson (Glasgow/Edinburgh), won the Mícheál Ó Cléirigh prize for the best postgraduate presentation.
The prize is on offer again this year, with the continued support of the UCD Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Institute. The award, worth €100, will be announced at the end of the conference. In addition, the ICM has teamed up with Peritia
, the journal of the Medieval Academy of Ireland, and the winning paper will be offered the chance of publication in the journal.
Call for Papers: Volumes 26 and 27
Peritia, Journal of the Medieval Academy of Ireland, has recently been relaunched, with a new website: http://peritia.ie
The editors, Prof. Dáibhí Ó Cróinín (NUIG) and Dr Elva Johnston (UCD), are currently in the process of completing volume 26 (2015). Authors interested in appearing in this volume are encouraged to submit articles and reviews via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of June 2015. Submissions after this date will be considered for volume 27 (2016). Before submitting, authors should familiarise themselves with our peer-review policies and style sheet.
The 29th Irish Conference of Medievalists will take place in University College Dublin, 1st – 3rd July 2015.
The Irish Conference of Medievalists is an interdisciplinary forum which welcomes papers on all aspects of Irish and European medieval culture, including archaeology, music, history, art history, folklore, language and literature. We also welcome papers which explore Ireland in its wider international context. Following last year’s very successful panel session we encourage speakers to organise themed panels, consisting of three papers and a nominated chair.
Last year the ICM inaugurated the Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Prize for the best graduate paper submitted to, and delivered at, the ICM. Emma Anderson (Glasgow/ Edinburgh) was our very first winner. Her paper on early music was a conference highlight.
We are pleased to announce the prize again this year, with the continued support of the UCD Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Institute. The award, worth €100, will be announced at the end of the conference. In addition, we have teamed up with Peritia, the journal of the Medieval Academy of Ireland, and the winning paper will be offered the chance of publication in the journal.
