"Research in the humanities and critical social studies constitutes a vital dimension of Irish intellectual life, giving expression to cultural values and traditions that sustain the country and provide a vital foundation for the future."
The fellowship offered me unparalleled access not only to archival sources at NUIG (not available anywhere else), but also to a network of deeply learned Irish Studies academics whose scholarship is not available to me in my home institution, or even across the US
I very much appreciate the time that my residence at the Moore gave me to focus on research and writing. It has proved to be invaluable to my work, both in the material resources available and in the international and interdisciplinary scholarly networks that it continues to create, further, and support.
"The facilities at the Moore Institute are second to none. The use of a purpose built silent research centre, with the use of my own desk, with comfortable storage space and close proximity to the library, access to internet and technical help when I needed it, has been wonderful. Meeting other researchers and going to other seminars and lectures during my visits has also been useful."
