IRISH Seminar


Since 1999, the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies has sponsored a summer graduate seminar that brings together Irish scholars, graduate students, and faculty in Irish Studies.  An intense intellectual exchange and experience, the seminar has been a formative experience for scores of Notre Dame graduate students and their peers from universities around the world.

For summer 2017, two annual graduate-level Notre Dame seminars—the IRISH Seminar and the Rome Seminar—came together to hold a joint seminar on "Ireland & Italy" at the Notre Dame Rome Global Gateway.  The Seminar's executive director was Barry McCrea, Donald R. Keough Family Professor of Irish Studies and Professor of English, Irish Language and Literature, and Romance Languages and Literatures.
