Ireland's Literatures of Coercive Confinement

This project maps Irish literary representations of coercive confinement (such as prisons, asylums, industrial schools, Magdalene laundries, mother-and-child institutions and direct provision centres) across periods, genres and forms. It is funded by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoc and hosted by the School of English, Drama and Film and the Humanities Institute, University College Dublin, where I am mentored by Prof. Emilie Pine.
