Conference: New Perspectives on Irish English 3

New Perspectives on Irish English 3 2015 

The State of Irish English: Connecting Multiple Views on a Variety

Previously held at University College Dublin, this year’s New Perspectives on Irish English will be held on the 18-19 June 2015 at the University of Limerick. It is hosted by the University of Limerick and Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, and is jointly organised with Newcastle University, UK.

This event will build on the success of previous symposia in creating a space for scholars of Irish English to share current research and perspectives, and to create new collaborations. The focus of research on Irish English has hitherto been clustered – within the fields of syntax, phonology, semantics-pragmatics, dialectology, sociolinguistics, corpus-based linguistics, or literary studies, for example – and the principal goal of this symposium is to draw these inherently connected strands together, to create a strong collective that is open and interdisciplinary. 

NPIE 3 is being organised by Elaine Vaughan (University of Limerick) and Brian Clancy (Mary Immaculate College, Limerick), in conjunction with Karen Corrigan, Newcastle University, UK.
