    Irish Literature in English

    I teach a wide range of material on the subject of Irish literature in English from eighteenth-century figures such as Jonathan Swift and Oliver Goldsmith to more contemporary writers like Michael Hartnett and Rita Ann Higgins. I have a special interest in twentieth-century Irish literature and in particular the period around the literary revival.
