Anglo-Irish Identities, 1600-1800

A five-week summer seminar for fifteen college and university teachers on the social, cultural, political, and literary contexts of Anglo-Irish identities in the early modern period.

The Keough Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame seeks the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities for a five-week Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers from June 22 to July 24, 2009. Professor Christopher Fox, director and co-founder of the Institute, will lead an interdisciplinary Seminar entitled "Anglo-Irish Identities, 1600-1800." The Seminar will explore the complex and contested cultural, political, and ideological identities of a group we have come to call the Anglo-Irish. How did they define themselves as a group and differentiate themselves from others? The proposed Seminar will examine this question of identity and difference in some representative writers, including Edmund Spenser, William Molyneux, Jonathan Swift, George Berkeley, Maria Edgeworth, and Edmund Burke. Each participant will also have an opportunity to present work in progress and to interact with several visiting faculty who are key figures in the field.
