We welcome our new Irish Studies faculty this year.

Irish novelist, Glenn Patterson, will hold the Heimbold Chair of Irish Studies in the Spring of 2016.  He will give a public reading on St. Patrick's Day, Tuesday, March 17, in the Connelly Center Cinema.

Dr. Mary Mullen, Assistant Professor of English, has joined Villanova and will be teaching courses in Victorian and nineteenth-century Irish literature.  Look for her Core Literature and Writing Seminar, which also counts for the Irish Studies minor.

Also, Dr. Craig Bailey of the History Department will be serving as Interim Director of Irish Studies this year, while Dr. Joseph Lennon is on sabbatical in Ireland and Italy.
