Dr. Danine FarquharsonDr. Farquharson’s research of 20th-century Irish literature has found that the issues of masculinity and violence are not only important to Ireland, but to the contemporary world outside of Ireland.
This violence affects everyone, from the individual to entire nations. She is also researching literary representations of the Easter Rising of 1916.
For Dr. Farquharson, the connections between Newfoundland and Ireland are fascinating, and subtler than people think.
But it is this connection, and the combination of Newfoundland literature and Irish drama that helped Dr. Farquharson decide to continue her academic career at Memorial.
As a professor with the Faculty of English, the faculty’s graduate coordinator, and the President of the Canadian Association for Irish Studies, Dr. Farquharson has a chance to sustain the same environment that she was a part of as a grad student: great students and faculty, and a chance to live and work in one of the most amazing cities in the world.
