Moore Institute visiting fellows map, 2011 - 2017

The Moore Institute Visiting Fellowship scheme has welcomed 135 visiting academics from a wide range of institutions around the world and within Ireland since its launch in 2010. We have received generous support from the Galway University Foundation, the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Celtic Studies, and the Hardiman Library in running the programme. Visiting fellowships provide the opportunity to conduct research on the rich archival and print collections here, to interact with the academic community across the College, the university, the city, and region, and to create new partnerships and networks for future research.

    Kerry Sinanan

    KERRY.SINANAN@nuigalway.ie

    I specialise in the literature and culture of slavery, abolition and race in the long eighteenth century. My current research is a multidisciplinary project analysing the competing discourses that constructed representations of slave women and their bodies in contemporary literary and historical texts and in the visual arts. The work for this emerged out of research for my monograph, Slave Masters and the Language of Self: Traders, Planters and Colonial Agents, 1750-1834, currently under consideration. At The Moore I am undertaking further research on the background of Nicholas Owen an Irish-born eighteenth-century slave trader who lived on the Guinea Coast in the 1750s.
