Dr. Julie Morrissy is an Irish poet, academic, critic, and activist. She was the first Poet-in-Residence at the National Library of Ireland in the Decade of Centenaries programme. From 2019-2021 she was the inaugural John Pollard Newman Fellow in Creativity at University College Dublin, and she is currently a National Endowment of the Humanities Fellow at the University of Notre Dame. Her collaborative, mixed-media poetry practice includes film, animation, moving image, experimental publishing, and live performance.
Dr. Morrissy will read from a variety of poetry projects, including her debut collection Where, the Mile End (2019). She will also introduce new and forthcoming work created in her role as Poet-in-Residence at the National Library of Ireland in the Decade of Centenaries programme, and her new pamphlet Other Blue Baskets.
Join the reading first in the Snite Museum's seminar room, so that Dr. Morrissy can share images with us. We will then move to the galleries of the current exhibition: Who Do We Say We Are? Irish Art 1922 | 2022.
