Congratulations/Félicitations
Brian Murphy - Lecturer ITT DublinOn September 10 2013, Brian Murphy successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled:  Changing Identities in a Homogenised World: The Role of “Place and Story” in Modern Perceptions of French Wine Culture. The external examiners, Professor Grace Neville (UCC) and Dr Máirtin Mac Con Iomaire (DIT/Cathal Brugha Street), were most impressed with Brian’s grasp of his subject and the way in which he managed to cover such a wide range of material and methodologies.

Call for Papers

 

The aims and objectives of the NCFIS are broadly the following:

  • The NCFIS will seek to create an environment in which research into the cultural, literary, commercial, philosophical and historical links between Ireland and France can be examined in a scientific and rigorous manner.
  • It will provide a space where emerging scholars can congregate to develop research areas that are germane to the Centre’s mission.
  • It will seek to provide a model of excellence in the area of Franco-Irish relations to the benefit of all interested parties.
  • While continuing to value traditional scholarship in terms of publications, it will also explore viable commercial opportunities as they present themselves.
  • It will develop research networks between third level institutions in France and Ireland.
  • It will lobby government bodies in France and Ireland to secure financial support to continue its current level of activity and to branch into new areas.
