Dr Edward Molloy, School of English and Digital Humanities, wins Maurice J. Bric Medal of Excellence in IRC's Researcher of the Year Awards 2020.
Congratulations to Dr Edward Molloy, School of English and Digital Humanities, who has just been awarded the Maurice J. Bric Medal of Excellence in IRC's Researcher of the Year Awards 2020.
Edward’s postdoctoral fellowship research project (Between History and Revolution: Radical Irish Separatism from Tone to Pearse´) re-evaluates the intellectual underpinning of Irish nationalism in the long nineteenth century through reading the works of prominent Irish nationalists to excavate the justifications that they use for their assertions of the right of Ireland to be independent of Britain. Dr Molloy also looks at the memoirs, novels, newspapers, pamphlets and plays produced by the nationalist movement from the 1790s to 1916.
The School of English and Digital Humanities, UCC is very proud to be hosting the winner of the Maurice J. Bric Medal of Excellence award for the second year in a row and congratulates Eddie on his winning of this prestigious award. His mentor, Dr Heather Laird, commented that 'Dr Molloy is an impressive early career scholar whose comparative research on radical Irish nationalism will have impact across disciplinary boundaries.
