A symposium organised by the School of Histories and Humanities in association with the University of Notre Dame.
This symposium will interrogate the themes explored by Professor Diarmuid Ó Giolláin (University of Notre Dame) in his landmark new publication Exotic Dreams in the Science of the Volksgeist. Towards A Global History of European Folklore Studies (2023). Bringing together colleagues from a range of disciplines (History, Irish Studies, Modern Languages and Literatures) the session is an open ended conversation about the intersections between language, colonialism, folklore, and ethnography.
