We are delighted that Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill again has agreed to join the Keough-Naughton Institute and the Department of Irish Language and Literature as Distinguished Professor of Irish Poetry and Naughton Fellow during the Fall semester of 2013. This is Nuala's second visit to the Keough-Naughton Institute. Regarded as the greatest living poet in the Irish language, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill has won every major prize in the field, including the American Ireland Fund Literature Prize (an award also won by Donald and Marilyn Keough Professor Seamus Deane MRIA). Her work has been translated into a number of languages and into English by Seamus Heaney, John Montague and Paul Muldoon, among others. Her poetry features prominently in the Field Day Anthology and The Penguin Book of Contemporary Irish Poetry. She was the second holder of the Ireland Chair of Poetry at Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and Queen's University Belfast.  She has previously been a Visiting Professor at New York University and served as Burns Professor at Boston College.
