Welcome to the website for “Ireland in Space,” the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting of the American Conference for Irish Studies. The meeting will take place at Georgetown University from November 2 to November 4, 2017, and will feature dozens of papers on Irish literature, history, art, and politics, along with three exciting plenary events. All information for the conference will be posted on this website when available, but if you have any questions feel free to contact us.

All are welcome to the plenary events (though you must RSVP–more details will be available soon), and registered participants may attend all of the panels, the plenary events, and enjoy breakfast, lunch, and snacks on both days of the conference.

We are grateful to our generous sponsors for making this meeting possible.
