Dr Lauren Arrington

The Trinity Long Room Hub is delighted to welcome Dr Lauren Arrington from the University of Liverpool as a Visiting Research Fellow in collaboration with the School of English.

Dr Arrington is Senior Lecturer in Irish Literature in English at the Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool. Before joining the University of Liverpool in 2009, she was Adrian Research Fellow in English at Darwin College, Cambridge, and she has taught at Goldsmiths, Queen Mary University of London, and Oxford. Lauren studied in the United States, Ireland, and the UK, where she wrote her doctorate at Oxford University. She is the author of W.B. Yeats, the Abbey Theatre, Censorship, and the Irish State: Adding the Half-Pence to the Pence (Oxford University Press, 2010) and Revolutionary Lives: Constance and Casimir Markievicz (Princeton University Press, 2016).

She has also published articles on Irish Modernism, women's suffrage poetry, and agitprop theatre.

During the consolidation of Mussolini's regime, W.B. Yeats and Ezra Pound - two of the foremost poets of Anglophone late modernism - were at the centre of a network of international writers and artists who gathered at Rapallo, Italy.  Dr Arrington is analysing the way that the political climate in early fascist Italy and the perceived political crises in their native countries affected these writers' concepts of history, civilisation, education, the state, and revolution: all major themes in their work.  Rapallo presents a new way of reading two of the most important poets of the twentieth century and of understanding the way that modernism evolved in provincial Italy after its heyday in Paris and London.

Dr Arrington will give a public lecture on Monday, 15 May at 6.30pm at the Trinity Long Room Hub entitled 'Fighting Spirits'.
