Welcome to Marginal Irish Modernisms
A network of scholars reconsidering the Irish modernist tradition.
Established in 2015, Marginal Irish Modernisms aims to establish an international network of scholars which will reconsider the meaning and scope of Irish Modernism.
The network, which is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, will consider a range of marginal Irish cultural practices, texts and events from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Marginal Irish Modernisms will also organise a series of interdisciplinary networking events, colloquia and dedicated postgraduate events. Plans are being developed for a monograph series, a dedicated journal and a range of public engagement activities too.
To achieve these aims, academics from Liverpool John Moores University are working in partnership with researchers from St Mary’s University, London, and Trinity College, Dublin.’
