Inaugural Briena Staunton Visiting Fellow

Trinity College Dublin and Pembroke College Cambridge are delighted to announce the inaugural Briena Staunton Visiting Fellow. The Fellowship is generously endowed by Professor James Meaney, in memory of his aunt, Briena Staunton, and it enables a leading international writer, nominated alternately by Pembroke and Trinity, to spend a month writing and supporting students in Dublin or Cambridge. Pembroke’s nomination for the first Fellow is the distinguished novelist, short story writer and critic Adam Mars-Jones. Adam will spend March 2019 in Dublin, working with the School of English and with creative writing students at the Oscar Wilde Centre for Irish Writing.  

Pictured at the announcement of the event in Cambridge on Friday 26 October are Adam Mars-Jones (r) and Professor James Meaney (l).
