CFP: Book ‘Flann O’Brien & the Nonhuman: Animals, Environments, Machines’

Flann O’Brien & the Nonhuman: Animals, Environments, Machines (eds. Katherine Ebury, Paul Fagan, John Greaney). Deadline February 1, 2020.   Recent years have seen a remarkable rise in studies dedicated to the nonhuman turn in Irish literary and modernist contexts. Yet this proposed collection posits that the writing of Brian O’Nolan (pseud. Flann O’Brien, Myles na gCopaleen) constitutes a significant gap in these critical conversations. This is a body of writing acutely suited to the concerns of animal studies, ecocriticism, ecofeminism, object-oriented ontology, cyborg theory and posthumanist approaches, but which remains conspicuous by its absence in these debates. This volume of essays addresses and corrects this critical lacuna. Please send bios and abstracts of no more than 500 words and direct enquiries to k.ebury@sheffield.ac.ukpaul.fagan@univie.ac.at, and john.greaney@ucd.ie.
