ILHS: Galway University Scholar Chris McCann
January 26, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Galway University Scholar Chris McCann will discuss Revealing Social Hierarchy Through Music in Irish Literature, a project supported by the Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postgraduate Award. This discussion addresses Irish musical-literary responses to the challenges posed by social and spatial hierarchies across the last century. It surveys music as a device in the works of diverse authors, from Joyce and Seán Ó Faoláin to Breandán Ó hEithir and Éilis Ní Dhuibhne, and assesses how music functions between text and community in Ireland and the diaspora. ILHS members are free with guest; others $5 donation. Tea, coffee and soda bread reception to follow. Visit ILHSsf.org
