Anne Markey, BA (DCU), M Phil (Dublin) PhD (Dublin)
Dr Anne Markey studied with Oscail at Dublin City University, before coming to complete an M. Phil in Irish writing and a PhD on Oscar Wilde’s fairy tales in Trinity College Dublin. Her research focuses on intersections between Gaelic traditions and Irish writing in English; on literary representations of childhood from the seventeenth century to the present day; on translation; and on literary uses of folklore.
In 2009, Dr Markey’s edition of Patrick Pearse’s Irish-language short stories, in Joseph Campbell’s translation, was published by UCD Press. As a post-doctoral fellow on the Early Irish Fiction project (2008-2009), she co-edited editions of Vertue Rewarded (1693) and Irish Tales (1716), both published by Four Courts Press in 2010. In 2011, Children’s Fiction: 1765-1809, a collection of once-popular but long-forgotten stories by critically neglected Irish authors was published by Four Courts Press, and her monograph, Oscar Wilde’s Fairy Tales: Origins and Contexts, was published by Irish Academic Press.
Dr Markey contributes to a number of undergraduate lecture and seminar courses; teaches the Sophister Option course, ‘Literary Childhoods from Locke to Lewis Carroll’; and offers option and core classes on the M. Phil in Children’s Literature. She also presents and co-ordinates the accredited postgraduate module in teaching and learning offered by CAPSL.
