Research and Teaching Interests
Dr David Jameson is a graduate of University College Dublin (B.A. Hons) and Trinity College Dublin (M.Phil.& Ph.D.). He was an Irish Research Council scholar from 2009 to 2011 and completed his doctoral degree in 2013.
His doctorate offered a comprehensive assessment of how a broad range of Irish novelists depicted mixed marriages or inter-faith relationships in Irish fiction. To establish the complexity of the issue with which the writers were engaging, the study was interdisciplinary and gave extensive treatment to the theological, historical and sociological contexts of inter-faith relationships and mixed marriages in Ireland.
His primary research interests are in the area of twentieth-century Irish fiction and nineteenth and twentieth-century Irish political and ecclesiastical history. He is currently preparing a monograph on mixed marriage disputes in Ireland and has been teaching on the Junior Fresher ‘Irish Writing’ module for the past ten years.
