Dear Colleagues,

Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Thursday, January 23, at 6:00 p.m. to hear Margaret Kelleher speak
on the topic:

*“Bilingualism at the Bar: James Joyce’s Maamtrasna Revisited”*


The presentation will take place in Room 133 of the Barker Center.


*Margaret Kelleher* is Chair of Anglo-Irish Literature and Drama at
University College Dublin.  From 2007-2012 she was founding director of *An
Foras Feasa*: the Institute for Research in Irish Historical and Cultural
Traditions, at National University of Ireland Maynooth. Her books include *The
Feminization of Famine* (published by Duke UP and Cork UP, 1997), *Gender
Perspectives in Nineteenth-Century *Ireland (1997; co-edited with James H
Murphy), *Nineteenth-Century Ireland: A Guide to Recent Research* (2005;
co-edited with Laurence Geary) and the two volume *Cambridge History of
Irish Literature* (2006, co-edited with Philip O’Leary). She has published
widely in the areas of nineteenth-century literature, famine studies,
women’s writings and cultural studies. Professor Kelleher is Chairperson of
the International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures and a
member of Science Europe’s Humanities Committee. She has been visiting
scholar at Concordia University Montreal, University of São Paulo, Boston
College, Beijing Foreign Studies University, and St John’s College,
Cambridge.

There is free parking near the HHC at the Broadway Garage, on Felton
between Broadway and Cambridge Street. Just tell the attendant that you're
participating in an event at the HHC. Normally the attendant is welcoming,
as long as it's after 5:00 p.m., even if we are erroneously not on the good
list.

We hope you'll be able to attend the session, which, as always, includes
discussion after the presentation.


*Additional Spring 2014 sessions of the Modernism Seminar (dates TBA):*

Helen Vendler (Harvard) on Yeats

Sanjay Krishnan (Boston University) on Naipaul, realism, and styles of
modernity
