[Commlist] Symposium: Odd Man Out (Carol Reed, 1947), NUI Galway. May 25 2019

Wed Feb 27 23:17:14 GMT 2019

*Call for Papers***

*/Odd Man Out /(Carol Reed, 1947): **Film*, *History, **Politics *

*a symposium hosted by Huston School of Film & Digital Media, NUI Galway*

* Saturday 25 May 2019**

Papers are invited for a one-day symposium on Carol Reed’s 1947 film starring James Mason as a wounded IRA man on the run, scuttling through the dark streets of Belfast in a bid to evade capture by the British authorities.

The symposium (and screening of the film) is organised by Breandán/Mac Suibhne/(/The End of Outrage: Post-Famine Adjustment in Rural Ireland/, Oxford 2018) and Tony Tracy (Huston School of Film & Digital Media, NUI Galway)and seeks to develop upon existing scholarship across a variety of themes and approaches.  To date we have a number of eminent speakers confirmed but are keen to promote as multidimensional approach as possible.

Among the themes we would wish to consider are:

Odd Man Out as adaptation; its status as an Anglo-Irish literary/cinematic narrative from historical, gendered and political perspectives; its imagining of [Northern-Irish] space; its place within the post-war oeuvre of director Reed; its contemporary reception and ongoing legacy.

It is envisaged that proceedings will be published in a Journal special issue

Please forward proposals (Up to 250 words) before *April 1st* to: (tony.tracy /at/ <mailto:(tony.tracy /at/>

* The symposium is planned as an ancillary event to the "Violence, Space and Archives" conference at NUI Galway and is *free of charge*
