Please note that full participation in ACIS / SOUTH 2022 is available only to American Conference for Irish Studies members in good standing. Please verify your membership or join ACIS prior to registering for the conference. Details on joining ACIS or renewing your membership can be found at

All attendees must register if they plan to attend the panel discussions.

All plenary conversations are free and open to the public.

Registration is free for students, adjunct and faculty with less support.

Registration is $50 for everyone else.

All attendees who register for a panel discussion will receive an email confirming their presentation of their research as a means to support travel funding requests from their home institutions, as appropriate.

When you register, you will be asked if you would like to present your work in conversation at one or more of the panel discussions. If so we will ask you to share:

  • A title for your research interest
  • A brief description of your research interest
  • A short biography to share with other discussants

The panel discussions will take place in two fifty-minute sessions on Saturday morning. Numbers will be limited in each discussion to allow good conversation, but we will repeat discussions on each theme to accommodate everyone who is interested. If a theme that interests you is not listed among the choices, please let us know by writing Calli McCormack at, and we will try to include your suggestion. The format of each panel discussion will be a welcome by a moderator, brief remarks on their research by each person participating, and a conversation between participants.

To help us schedule, when you fill out the registration form you will be asked to choose up to three of the following themes:

  • Border crossings
  • Intersectional Irelands
  • Ireland and the American South
  • Women’s Health
  • Queer Politics across Borders
  • Partition and the Future
  • Irish Studies and the Environmental Humanities

There will also be space on the form to let us know if you are willing to moderate a discussion if asked.
