MÍCHEÁL Ó CLÉIRIGH INSTITUTE 8TH DONATUS MOONEY SEMINAR: ‘BEGGING, WRITING AND THINKING’
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.
