Lucy McDiarmid

Lucy McDiarmid is the author or editor of eight books. Her scholarly interest in cultural politics, especially quirky, colorful, suggestive episodes, is exemplified by Poets and the Peacock Dinner: the literary history of a meal (2014) and The Irish Art of Controversy (2005). Her recent work focuses on two entirely distinct topics: At Home in the Revolution: what women said and did in 1916 (2015) and Recent Irish Poetry and the Slightly Magical (completed ms.). She is a former fellow of the Guggenheim Foundation and of the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library. Her reviews appear in the TLS and the Irish Times. At the Long Room Hub she will be consulting the manuscripts of Leland Bardwell’s poems as part of a study of non-standard, unconventional, ‘odd’ Irish writers of the last 100 years. At Montclair State University she holds the Marie Frazee-Baldassarre Professorship in the English Department.
