The Graduate IRISH Seminar

The IRISH Seminar has been presented annually since 1999 at Notre Dame Dublin. Sponsored by the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies, the summer graduate seminar brings together Irish scholars, graduate students, and faculty in Irish Studies from around the world. An intense intellectual exchange, the seminar has been a formative experience for scores of Notre Dame graduate students and their peers from universities around the world.

In January 2020, Notre Dame Kylemore hosted leading scholars and recognised experts in a range of areas to discuss the future of Ireland, North & South in a post-Brexit context. This two-day "think in" led to a partnership between the Royal Irish Academy and the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies. ARINS, which stands for Analyzing & Researching Ireland, North & South was launched in January 2021 with the publication of the first ARINS research papers in Irish Studies in International Affairs.
