The Centre for Constitutional Governance at Trinity College Dublin invites papers from interested academics in law, politics, sociology and languages, as well as from legal practitioners and those engaged in work on relevant policy areas, on the future of the Irish language in Ireland, both North and South. The organisers welcome papers concerning the theme broadly and in particular those which consider the legal status of the Irish language in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, the commitment to parity of esteem in Northern Ireland, comparative examinations of the protection of minority language rights in Ireland and other European jurisdictions, the interaction of language and politics and the role of language in political and social contexts. The organisers particularly welcome papers concerning language planning. Papers from PhD students and Early Career Researchers are encouraged. The aim of the conference is to offer a forum for the development of a dialogue on the current and future status of the Irish language in law and policy, drawing on the multi-disciplinary perspectives of academics and practitioners. Paper proposals of a maximum 750 words and a short author biography of no more than 150 words should be sent via email to the organisers Róisín Costello and James Rooney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
