Postgrad Reading Group
The Reading Group in Irish Studies is open to all interested postgrads (MA and PhD), and is run by the Postgrads.
This month’s reading is a particularly interesting one by Seaghan Mac an tSionnaigh (University of Notre Dame, Indiana), titled ‘The vocative case on people’s mouths: the Irish Folklore Commission and illiterate linguistics’. Available here: https://www.estudiosirlandeses.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/DEF.tSIONNAIGH.pdf
It’s sure to be of interest to anyone with an interest in Irish cultural nationalism, the Irish language or folklore more generally.
As always, hope to see you all there!
PhD Student of History
