Dr Brian McManus in conversation with Dr Ríona Nic Congáil and Dr Rebecca Long

Wednesday, 10 March 7-8 pm GMT.

The Irish Society for the Study of Children's Literature is delighted to announce our 2021 Conversation series exploring and discussing issues around representation, social justice, colonialism, and anti-racism in Irish and international youth literature. This is the second of four Conversations taking place via Zoom between February-May 2021.

Ríona Nic Congáil is an Associate Professor in the School of Irish, Celtic Studies and Folklore in University College Dublin. Her research interests include children's literature and culture, women's literature and the Gaelic Revival. Her book "An Óige agus an Athbheochan" will be published later this year.

Rebecca Long received her PhD in children's literature from Trinity College Dublin in 2018. Her research interests include mythology, folklore, oral cultures and communal memory. Her book "Irish Children's Literature and the Poetics of Memory" will be published later this year.

This is the second of four Conversations taking place via Zoom between February-May 2021, exploring and discussing issues around representation, social justice, colonialism, and anti-racism in Irish and international youth literature. These Conversations are free for all attendees in order to increase access and especially to support students and early-career researchers to be able to attend.
