Description:

Join us on Thursday, October 24 at 6 p.m. in Robert Madden Auditorium for "Rebel Gunmen in Irish Fiction, Film, and Television," a lecture by Dr. Danine Farquharson, Associate Professor of English at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Ranging from the rebels of Liam O’Flaherty’s satirical fiction to the films of Neil Jordan and contemporary television shows such as Love/Hate, Professor Farquharson’s talk will cover a century of representations of Irish gunmen (and a few female rebels, too) to offer some idea of enduring tropes and stereotypes of these troublesome characters. This lecture is free and open to the public, and no registration is required. For more information, please email celtic.studies@utoronto.ca or call 416.926.7145.

The Celtic Studies Speakers Series is made possible by the generosity of a cultural grant from The Irish Cultural Society of Toronto.
