This project widens our understanding of cultural exchange in the nineteenth century by studying translation and translators. Translation history offers new perspectives on key historical, political and cultural debates of the era such as:

  • The impact of translation on emergent nationalism
  • The active participation of important figures of Irish cultural nationalism in translation
  • The close relationship between translation and religious endeavours in this period



  • Dr. Anne O’Connor – Principal Investigator
  • Dr. Michele Milan – Postdoctoral Researcher
  • Mr. José Shane Brownrigg-Gleeson – Research Assistant
