Modernist Studies Ireland












MSI’s monthly forum for new and on-going work in Irish modernist studies cordially invites you to its second session of the new year and semester, taking place on 13th Feb, from 5-7 pm, in the Bridge Room (THB). This seminar will be a first in many ways, as it is the most creative session to date. It is our great privilege that our wonderful speaker, Colette Nic Aodha (NUI Galway), will not only share her academic but also her creative work with us. Colette’s work takes inspiration from modernist David Jones in relation to liminality and disability, and her presentation will explore Jones’s modernism by way of performing her own poetry—in crucial aspects a response to and development of Jones’s. This will be combined with a visual art display. And, as always, there will be wine, cheese, and nibbles to keep us sustained on more than art and modernism!
