Irish History Lecture

29TH IN A SERIES ON IRISH HISTORY LECTURES
(Stair na hÉireann)
THE IRISH-JEWISH ULYSSES: HOW AND WHY TO READ THE WORLD’S GREATEST NOVEL

Our February presenter will be Dr. Abby Bender, Department of Languages and Literatures, and Director of the Minor in Irish Studies at Sacred Heart University. Dr. Bender’s research is focused on Irish literature and culture, and she is the author of Israelites in Erin: Exodus, Revolution, and the Irish Revival (Syracuse UP, 2015), as well as essays on James Joyce, Lady Gregory, Patrick Pearse, the Irish Revival, and transnationalism.
Dr. Bender’s current book project is a cultural and literary history of breastfeeding in Ireland, a topic that has led into further considerations of the body, biopower, disability, and medical humanities, with a particular focus on gender and women’s writing. She continues to be interested in questions of transnational analogy, and her current work in Jewish-Irish studies addresses both historical and contemporary issues of solidarity, migration, and borders.
