‘Pizza & Research’ is this month is on Wednesday 21st February at 6 pm in XG14 (Science Building). We have two PhD students who will tell us about their research projects.

We have Marie Egan from the School of English talking about 18th-Century British novelist and playwright, Frances Burney. Her research focuses on how Burney, and the women she created, had to negotiate a society that often preferred them to be silent and helpless, exploring the ideas of namelessness, powerlessness, gender and genre.

Ellen Howley is a 2nd year PhD student in the School of English. Her research focuses on contemporary Irish and Caribbean poetry. Comparing the poetry of the two regions, her research strives to discover the similar ways writers engage with questions of language, landscape, the nation and gender.

We hope to see you all at this event. Don’t forget it’s Bring Your Own Beer!

We also have a weekly Meetup event in the Nubar on the Glasnevin campus at 6:00 pm every Friday for an end of week social evening, with food platters. It is great opportunity for Postgrads to come together and relax after a hard weeks work.
