I am a Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellow at the University of Iceland, where my project, ‘Medieval Irish and Medieval Icelandic Texts in Nineteenth-Century Translation’ is a comparative study of antiquarian translations of medieval Irish and Icelandic texts into English and Danish respectively, published in the nineteenth-century. I was previously a Government of Ireland postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Irish, Celtic Studies, and Folklore. My project ‘Antiquarianism Politics and Sectarianism in Nineteenth-Century Ireland: A study of Ancient Laws and Institutes of Ireland (1852-1901)’ examined the translation of the corpus of medieval Irish literature in the nineteenth century. I was educated at the University of Wales, Bangor (BA German and English — 2005) and the National University of Ireland, Galway (MA Irish Studies — 2009). I was awarded a PhD by NUIG in 2017 for a thesis titled ‘Investigating Irish Antiquarianism: A Comparative Study of Protestant and Catholic Antiquarian Cultures, 1830-1876’.
