Surf Culture: Surfing & tourism in Ireland, visual culture, arts, music & surf culture, gender studies & surfing, Surfing & education.
The Drew TRANSATLANTIC CONNECTIONS Conference will take place in Bundoran, Co. Donegal, Ireland.
The Conference will also feature plenary lectures on historical and cultural topics pertaining to Ireland, America, and their relationship since the eighteenth century.
Surf Culture: January 16th 2014
Bundoran, Ireland is the location of our conference, but it is also the surf capital of Ireland. In the last fifty years, surf culture has exploded all along the West coast of Ireland, and has influenced Irish culture in many ways, reinvigorating rural communities, and offering a very contemporary twist to the traditional Irish seaside towns. Professor Travis Feezell, Chair of Sports Management at Belmont Abbey College (USA). and Stephen Boyd, Lecturer in Visual Culture at Dun Laoghaire  Institute of Art, Design and Technology will chair this section.  Submissions are invited on topics across the full range of surf culture, including topographical and geographical conditions, music culture, arts, sports and education, surf tourism and gender issues. Both individual paper and panel submissions (3-4 participants) are welcomed, as are proposals for presentations in non-traditional formats (posters, performances, exhibits). This section will take place at the Donegal Adventure Centre. Proposals should be 250-500 words in length, and include a brief (~50 word) bio of the submitter or—in the case of panels—each participant.
We encourage graduate students, scholars, academics and professionals to consider submitting paper proposals to this conference. Please send any questions to Niamh Hamill at the conference email address.
Submissions are due NOVEMBER 1, 2013 to nhamill@drew.edu
