Dawn Duncan's Book Launched in Dublin
Dawn Duncan's third book, Irish Myth, Lore and Legend on Film, was recently launched by the Irish Film Institute in Dublin. Professor Margaret Kelleher, chair of English at University College Dublin and President of the International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures, and Professor Eamon Maher, editor of the series Reimagining Ireland, spoke about Duncan's contributions to Irish Studies, her ground-breaking work in Irish Film studies, and her ability to make scholarship accessible to a general audience. Duncan has been invited back to the Irish Film Institute to give a public lecture based on her book at the end of July.
