Joined Sep 14 2010
School of Architecture, University of Limerick
My research follows interests in landscape, the coast, and modes of writing. I am developing work on a number of research projects: the practice of architecture writing / spatial writing, through the writing of narrative fiction and creative non-fiction in specific physical contexts; an exploration of the writing of landscape in particular contemporary Irish literature; a multi-disciplinary exploration into twentieth-century representations of landscape and Irishness; and a visual and textual study of the Irish seaside resort through contemporary student photography paralleled with eighteenth to twentieth century travel writing and nascent tourist literature.
