Bringing Ireland to Notre Dame, Notre Dame to Ireland, and Ireland to the World
The Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies is a research institute dedicated to the study and understanding of Irish culture—in Ireland and around the world—in all of its manifestations.
The Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies is part of the Keough School of Global Affairs, advancing integral human development through research, policy, and practice.
A new initiative at the Institute expands our study of Ireland and its place in the world.
Every semester, the Institute invites scholars, diplomats, writers, artists, and public figures to participate in its lively Lectures and Public Talks series. Explore the 2023 offerings.
In this monthly feature, we highlight a work of Irish art—and then amplify its meaning through music and poetry.

The book was launched at the Notre Dame Dublin Global Gateway on Bloomsday 2022, as the culmination of the Keough-Naughton Institute’s year-long Global Ulysses project.
