Principal and Chair at the School of Irish Studies at Concordia University in Montreal, Professor Kenneally will be the next distinguished speaker at the Princess Grace Irish Library.

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.

The talk takes place on Friday, September 15, at 7:30 pm. Reservations are essential due to the limited number of seats (+377 93 50 12 25 or pglib@monaco.mc). Entry €10 per person payable at the door, which close at 7:30 pm sharp.

The Princess Grace Irish Library operates under the aegis of the Fondation Princesse Grace.
