TLRH | Shirley Jackson and the Commedia dell-arte

Tuesday, 2 March 2021, 4 – 5pm

TLRH | Shirley Jackson and the Commedia dell-arte

A research seminar by Dr Dara Downey (TCD) as part of the School of English Staff-Postgraduate Seminar Series 2020-21 in partnership with Trinity Long Room Hub.

Dara Downey lectures in English in Trinity College Dublin and Dublin City University. She is the author of American Women’s Ghost Stories in the Gilded Age (2014), editor of The Irish Journal of Gothic and Horror Studies, and co-editor (with Ian Kinane and Elizabeth Parker) of Landscapes of Liminality: Between Space and Place (2016). She is currently working on a literary biography of Shirley Jackson for Palgrave Macmillan’s Literary Lives series, and is also researching the depiction of domestic servants in American Gothic.

The Staff-Postgraduate Seminar Series is a fortnightly meeting which has been integral to the School of English research community since the 1990s. The aim of the seminar series is to provide a relaxed and convivial atmosphere for staff and students to present their research to their peers. The series also welcomes distinguished guest lecturers from the academic community outside Trinity College to present on their work. It is a fantastic opportunity to share ideas and engage with the diverse research taking place within the School. The series conveners for the academic year 2020-21 are current PhD students Orlaith Darling, Janice Deitner and Maggie Masterson.
