Visiting Faculty Fellows

The Institute often invites scholars from other institutions, writers, and artists to visit for a period of a few weeks, or for one or more semesters. These long-term visitors enrich our Irish Studies community through their research, teaching, public talks, performances, or readings as well as through their active involvement in our community.
