NCFIS Logo

The National Centre for Franco-Irish Studies (henceforth NCFIS) was established in 2003. It was officially designated an Institute Research Centre in June 2006.

 

 

The primary functions of the NCFIS are the following:

  • The NCFIS is an interdisciplinary international research lab which examines the cultural, literary, commercial, philosophical and historical links between France and Ireland.
  • It is particularly active in the recruitment and training of graduate students.
  • While continuing to value traditional scholarship in terms of publications (14 essays collections and numerous monographs and journal articles), it also explores viable commercial opportunities as they present themselves.
  • It has developed a wide research network between TUD and numerous third level institutions in France, Ireland and further afield.
  • It benefits from the strong support received from the French Embassy in Ireland.

25th Anniversary Commemorative Lecture

On Tuesday 27 February, HE Michael D. Higgins attended two events that were organised to mark the 25th anniversary of IT Tallaght. The first was the commemorative lecture by Victor Merriman, Professor of Critical Performance Studies at Edge Hill University, entitled Arts and Humanities Research in Higher Education: Pressures, Perspectives and the Public Good.

This was followed by the launch, by Dr Derek Hand, Head of the School of English in Dublin City University, of The Reimagining Ireland Reader: Examining Our Past, Shaping Our Future (Peter Lang, Oxford). In spite of the Arctic weather conditions, the events were attended by several AFIS members.
