Virginie Roche-Tiengo, is an Associate Professor in Irish Studies at the University d’Artois. Following her Ph.D. at the Sorbonne on Lost Unity: The Poetics of Myth in the Theatre of the Irish Playwright Brian Friel, she has published on Irish drama, in particular the work of Brian Friel, Thomas Kilroy, Frank McGuinness, James Joyce, and Samuel Beckett. The latest international conference she co- organized in October 2018 was entitled Crossing Borders: Contemporary Anglophone Theatre in Europe. The conference aimed to allow academics, translators, publishers, and a wide range of theatre practitioners, to confront their experience with Anglophone theatre throughout Europe. 22 papers from 11 European countries (Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great-Britain, Greece, Italy, Malta, Montenegro, Serbia, Spain, and Portugal) were selected and the Play An Irish Story by Kelly Rivière was staged in the MSH (Maison des Sciences de l’Homme) Paris Nord. Virginie Roche-Tiengo is currently working on the Brian Friel Papers in the National Library of Ireland and in the archives of NUI Galway as part of a new book project. Her research also focuses on law and theatre.
