DATE CHANGE! Fellow in Focus: Prof Lucy McDiarmid in conversation with Prof Eve Patten

Please note the date change, this event is now on March 21st from 1-2pm.

Join us for a lunchtime 'in conversation' event featuring Visiting Research Fellow Prof Lucy McDiarmid (Montclair State University) in conversation with Prof Eve Patten (School of English, TCD), organized by Trinity Long Room Hub.

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 Trinity 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.

Eve Patten is Director of the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute and Professor of English at Trinity College, Dublin. A scholar in nineteenth and twentieth-century Irish and British literature and cultural history, she is editor of the volume of essays, Irish Literature in Transition, 1940-1980 (Cambridge University Press, 2020), and author of a monograph on representations of Ireland’s revolutionary decade in English writing, Ireland, Revolution, and the English Modernist Imagination (Oxford University Press, 2022). She is also co-PI on the Ireland’s Border Culture project, funded by the HEA Shared Island programme.
