Students within the MA in Irish and Irish-American Studies have pursued a variety of research projects in Irish literary studies, on topics ranging from early modern colonial writing about Ireland to contemporary poetry.
To be considered for a scholarship in Irish Literary Studies, applicants should use the essay question on the application form to discuss how they imagine taking advantage of the opportunity for graduate study of literature at Glucksman Ireland House. What lines of scholarly inquiry do you hope to pursue? Which authors and historical periods are of most concern to you? How have previous studies prepared you for graduate study of Irish writing?
