Irish Studies Conference

18th Australasian Irish Studies conference: The Irish in Australia 1788 to the present

Friday 1 - Sunday 3 July 2011

Explored the impact of Irish culture, religion, language and music in shaping Australian identity at the Irish Studies Association annual conference.

Speakers from across Australia and Ireland spent two days at the National Museum in Canberra, which is hosting the exhibition Not Just Ned: A true history of the Irish in Australia.

The third day of the conference was held at St Clement's Retreat and Conference Centre in Galong, once the home of Irishman Ned Ryan, a convict who became a respected local pastoralist.

Audio and transcripts of the plenary sessions will progressively be made available from our audio on demand section.
