Call for Abstracts for Special Issue

Geographies of Comparison:
Ireland and South Africa

Ireland was, as Robert Young writes, England’s first and always exceptional colony. But it was far from the only one. Its unique colonial status has yielded productive scholarship addressing its anomalous integration into the colonial world. While this scholarship has resulted in some excellent work on Ireland / India relations and an influential volume on the ‘green and black Atlantic’ that performed a valuable intervention in addressing the African dimensions of the Irish world, both Irish and South African scholars have, for the most part, neglected affiliations between these locations. The editors invite paper proposals for a special issue of Interventions that will consider literary and cultural intersections between Ireland and South Africa, especially ones that offer critical reflection on the bases, modes, necessity, or folly of comparison.

Papers might cover (but are not limited to) topics such as:

Peripheral/Regional/Alternative modernisms
Transnational Solidarities
Translocalisms
Nationalisms and religion
Gendered nationalisms
Migration and Asylum
Beckett / Joyce and African writing
Form and scales of comparison
Differential analysis
Ireland, South Africa and world literature
Differential analysis
World systems theory

Please submit 500-word abstracts, along with 100-word bios, to Cóilín Parsons and Agata Szczeszak-Brewer. Submissions are open until July 15, 2017. Abstracts (and essays) will be evaluated by the editors and outside reviewers on a competitive basis.

Queries can be directed to the editors:
Cóilín Parsons (coilin.parsons@georgetown.edu) and
Agata Szczeszak-Brewer (brewera@wabash.edu)
