The Annual Barbara Wright Memorial Lecture in French Studies

Date: 15 May - 15 May 2024
Time: 16:00 - 18:00
Venue: Neill Lecture Theatre, Trinity Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin

The French Department of Trinity College Dublin is delighted to announce the fourth Annual Barbara Wright Memorial Lecture in French Studies. This years lecture will be delivered by Professor Mary Orr (Buchanan Chair of French, University of St Andrews) on: Miscarriages of Critical Representation? Looking again at (mid-) Nineteenth-Century French and Francophone Travel Writing.

The series has been established to honour the memory of Professor Barbara Wright (1935-2019) and will be inspired by her broad scholarly interests and achievements. A renowned specialist primarily in nineteenth-century literature and textual and visual studies, Professor Wright’s distinction was recognised by the French Government: she was made a Chevalier de l’ordre national du mérite in 1975 and a Chevalier de la légion d’honneur in 2019. A renowned expert on painter, writer and art critic Eugène Fromentin, Professor Wright’s interests extended beyond literature to art and music. The Barbara Wright Prize, awarded annually to the Senior Sophister in the French Department who obtains the highest result (and not less than a First) in French literature, is an inspiring and enduring testimony to her scholarly rigour.
