BAIS Research Day and Virtual Conference 2021

We have two events for you to participate in during Spring 2021.

BAIS Research Day: On 17th March 2021 (St Patrick’s Day) we invite you all to post resources from your research in Irish Studies, including links to publications, web resources, previous talks and anything else that would benefit the community. In your post, please include both the hashtag #BAISDay2021 and our Twitter handle @BAIrishStudies You can view last year’s contributions here.

BAIS Virtual Conference: During the month of May 2021, BAIS will facilitate an online month-long Irish Studies ‘Conference’ on Twitter. We welcome speakers from anywhere in the world, at any stage of their careers, on any topic as long as it is related to Ireland or the Irish diaspora. We ask that during this period you upload to Twitter a presentation marked BOTH with the hashtag #BAISConf2021 and our Twitter handle, @BAIrishStudies. You can use any presentation tools you like – Periscope, Youtube, a poster of your research, choose whichever one you are confident using that makes your content available. We will share all presentations via our Twitter account that are appropriate for our Irish Studies community. We also ask that you make an effort, if you post a paper, to ask questions of other speakers. Even if you’re not presenting, we welcome interactions with the presenters (as long as they are constructive and courteous).   You can view last year’s papers here. We welcome papers in Irish and English.

While there is no fee for the conference you might, if you can afford it, consider supporting our activities in this difficult time by becoming a member at We offer Associate Membership for our friends around the world.
