Moore Institute Fellowship
Research on Eighteenth-Century Women’s Writing
Dr Clíona Ó Gallchoir has been awarded a fellowship at the Moore Institute of Irish Studies in NUI Galway. She will take up the month-long fellowship in February 2016 to pursue research on eighteenth-century women’s writing in Ireland, as part of a new History of Modern Irish Women’s Literature, to be published by Cambridge University Press in late 2016. Dr Ó Gallchoir is also editing the History, together with Heather Ingman. The fellowship will enable her to collaborate with scholars of women’s writing, Irish-language literature and eighteenth-century literature in the departments of English and Irish in NUIG.
