ESSE Galway Monday 22nd – Friday 26th August 2016

Welcome Letter Dear ESSE Delegate We are delighted to welcome you to Galway for this year’s conference of the European Society for the Study of English. With more than 800 papers and almost 100 different sessions, the conference promises to be busy – but also, we hope, to be stimulating, enjoyable and rewarding. We also hope that you find time to enjoy Galway and the west of Ireland: to visit places associated with such writers as Joyce, Yeats, Synge and Lady Gregory and to enjoy the city’s many cafes, pubs and restaurants. During the week ahead, you will have opportunities to encounter the living culture of this region: to hear from new Irish writers, and to encounter traditional Irish music and dance. Galway has recently been named European Capital of Culture for 2020. Hosting the ESSE conference thus provides us with a wonderful opportunity to re-affirm our place in Europe, to share knowledge, and to build new relationships. On behalf of the organising committee, I want to thank you very sincerely for joining us here, and we all wish you a very successful and rewarding week’s work!

The city has many relics of its medieval past and is worth taking time to explore. It has changed considerably over the last number of years and features a fascinating juxtaposition of new and ancient architecture.

Special Cultural Events TUESDAY ‘A NIGHT OF SEAN-NÓS SONG AND DANCE’ Together with ESSE 2016, the Centre for Irish Studies, NUI Galway, present a showcase performance of traditional sean-nós song and dance from the Connemara Gaeltacht. Performers will be drawn from present and past Sean-Nós Artists in Residence at NUI Galway, including Páraic Ó hOibicín, Mícheál Ó Cuaig, Máire Ní Mhaoilchíarán and Róisín Ní Mhainín. The Seannós Artist in Residence scheme represents the dynamic connection between the University and its Irish-speaking hinterland by recognising sean-nós song and dance as highly developed art forms that are particularly strong in the Connemara Gaeltacht, Co. Galway. The showcase performance is free and open to conference attendees and the general public. It takes place at 7.30pm, on Tuesday, 23 August at The Cube, NUI Galway.

The reading will feature Mike McCormack and Mary O’Malley. McCormack’s recent novel Solar Bones has been described by The Guardian as “an extraordinary novel by a writer not yet famous but surely destined to be acclaimed by anyone who believes that the novel is not dead and that novelists are not merely lit-fest fodder for the metropolitan middle classes.” Mary O’Malley is one of Ireland’s leading poets. She is the author of six poetry collections – A Consideration of Silk (Salmon, 1990); Where the Rocks Float (Salmon, 1993); The Knife in the Wave (Salmon, 1997); Asylum Road (Salmon, 2001); A Perfect V (Carcanet, 2006), Valparaiso (Carcanet, 2012) – and the latest, Playing the Octopus, which will be published in Augsut 2016.
