Dear members and friends of the Nordic Irish Studies Network,

I hope that you have all had a great start of the spring term. Please find below a short report on past events and information regarding a number of relevant activities relating to Irish Studies which will be taking place during the coming months in the Nordic countries. There is, once again, a lot to look forward to.

NISN PAST EVENTS

Nordic Circuit of the Irish Itinerary, Gothenburg, Aarhus, Kristiansand and Bergen – September 2015

In Gothenburg the Irish Itinerary was combined with the celebration of the 150 years since the birth of W. B. Yeats. Thus, the event began with Professor Margaret Harper from the University of Limerick giving a talk on Yeats and particularly on A Vision, her new edition of which was published a few days later in Dublin. This was followed by a brief account of Yeats’s significance in Sweden and Thomas Sjösvärd discussing his translation of The Tower. Both sessions were followed by many questions and interesting answers. In addition to reading her own poetry, Vona Groarke analysed and commented on a selection of poems by Yeats, both presentations evoking lively discussions. As in the other Nordic venues of the Irish Itinerary, Steafán Hanvey presented his multimedia performance of life in Northern Ireland.

The whole programme attracted teachers, students and an interested general public, the latter supported by notices in the largest daily paper. The success was enhanced by the visit of the new Irish ambassador, who travelled down from Stockholm. The part of the project focusing on Yeats was financially supported by the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities.

In Aarhus Vona Groarke read from her most recent collection X, and Steafán Hanvey again performed his piece Look Behind You! which addresses the conflict in Northern Ireland.

In Norway, the Irish Itinerary took place at the University of Agder in Kristiansand and at the University of Bergen in mid-September. Vona Groarke read her poetry and Steafán Hanvey performed “Look Behind You!” at the University of Agder Library and the Kristiansand Public Library, and at Ad Fontes café and restaurant in Bergen.
