Our November cultural event is an evening of Irish Literature, and will take place in Mulligan’s Irish Pub on Calle Yecla 24.
The event will start at 6pm with poetry and short story readings. The main event will consist of a talk on James Joyce titled: “An Introduction to James Joyce and his Major Works”.
Daniel Curran from Maynooth University will give the talk. Daniel is an Irish Research Council Scholar and PhD candidate at Maynooth University working in the fields of Irish literature, Modernism and philosophy. He previously held the John and Pat Hume Scholarship. His thesis is entitled ‘Reporting Death in Joyce and Beckett’ and is being completed under the supervision of Prof. Emer Nolan.
He has presented at numerous international conferences and was a guest editor on the Spring 2018 (4.1) issue of The Parish Review: Journal of Flann O’Brien Studies. His forthcoming publications include essays on Flann O’Brien in Flann O’Brien: Gallows Humour (Cork University Press) and Thomas MacGreevy in a collection on marginal Irish Modernisms. He is also the co-founder of a Galway-based Finnegans Wake reading group. In addition to his academic work, Daniel is a writer and editor at the website 90maat.com.
We’re looking forward to a great evening!
