Michael Kenneally, who will address the subject of “The Irish in Canada: History and Achievements”, is a specialist in modern and contemporary Irish literature, as well as nineteenth-century writing by Irish-Canadian immigrants. He is particularly interested in fictional forms including Irish novels, short stories, and life-writing texts such as memoirs, diaries and letters.
Along with the principal Irish investigator Margaret Kelleher (University College Dublin), Michael Kenneally is also the principal Canadian investigator of a multidisciplinary team of international scholars studying the impact of memory, identity and representations of the past in Ireland and Quebec.
Among his publishing achievements is Sean O’Casey and the Art of Autobiography. In addition, Professor Kenneally has produced articles on autobiographical dimensions of writers such as W. B. Yeats, James Joyce, and George Moore, and has edited several collections of essays, including Irish Literature and Culture: Cultural Contexts; Literary Idioms in Contemporary Irish Literature; and Poetry in Contemporary Irish Literature.
A former editor of the Canadian Journal of Irish Studies, Professor Kenneally currently serves as its Associate Editor.

On the 30th anniversary of his first Monegasque victory, a Grand Prix Suite has been dedicated to him at the Fairmont Monte Carlo and inaugurated by his niece and Director General of the Ayrton Senna Institute, Bianca Senna. In the presence of HSH Prince Albert, a commemorative plaque was unveiled at the entrance of the hotel before a procession of international journalists came up to discover the suite, which offers a balcony on the famous Fairmont hairpin curve as well as on the entrance to the Louis II tunnel. After the Jean Alesi Suite, the David Coulthard Suite and the Sir Stirling Moss Suite, this is a new space dedicated to this triple World Champion. Mrs Senna's private collection of photos, books and other items relating to the driver have been incorporated in the suite, as the hotel pays its own a unique tribute.
