Join the BSU Irish Studies Program for our virtual Spring 2021 Irish Cultural Heritage Day. Our speaker will be Dr. Katherine O'Callaghan of UMass Amherst, who will deliver a lecture entitled The Soundscape of James Joyce's “Sirens."
Katherine O’Callaghan lectures on James Joyce, modernism, Irish literature, and the role of music in novels at UMASS Amherst. She received her PhD from University College, Dublin. A member of the Board of Trustees of the International James Joyce Foundation, she is the editor of Essays on Music and Language in Modernist Literature: Musical Modernism, and co-editor with Oona Frawley of Memory Ireland, Volume IV: James Joyce and Cultural Memory. A recent article, “The Riddle of the Brocken Spectre: Reading Finnegan’s Wake on the Top of Croagh Patrick,” was published in the James Joyce Quarterly.
