One-day conference Saturday 15th October 2022, hosted by the School of Media and the Centre for Critical Media Literacy (CCML) at Technological University DublinOrganised by the Traditional Song Forum and CCML, with the support of the Irish Traditional Music Archive and An Góilín Traditional Singers Club.This will be an in-person conference, with proceedings live-streamed for those who cannot be there. Admission is free.
We invite proposals for 15-to-20-minute presentations on any aspect of cheap print and street literature in Britain and Ireland (and their diasporas) – including intersections of the histories of journalism and other facets of the popular press.
The Traditional Song Forum’s annual Broadside Day conference has been held every February for almost 20 years, but whenever possible the TSF likes to add a second event, Broadside Extra, in the autumn, in partnership with other institutions and organisations. This is the first time the event will be held in Dublin.
Broadside Extra is our opportunity to gather and talk about the fascinating field of cheap print and street literature of the past; broadsides, chapbooks, last dying speeches, catchpennies, garlands and news sheets, penny histories and children’s books, popular prints, pedlars, jobbing printers. ballad-singers, and so on. Proposals for papers and panels are invited in any of these areas. Proposals that examine how marginalised people and groups used these media forms are particularly welcome.
For queries and to send an abstract of approximately 250 words, together with a biography of not more than 150 words, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for proposals: 31 July 2022
No payment from authors is required.
