IRISH HERITAGE QUEBEC / HÉRITAGE IRLANDAIS QUÉBEC
Monday February 13 at 19:30 — Irish Heritage Quebec will hold an activity in McMahon Hall, 1145 de Salaberry in Quebec City.
Brad Kent, an associate professor of British and Irish literatures at Université Laval will give a presentation entitled Sean O’Faolain, the Irish Public Intellectual, and European Culture.
Brad Kent has recently published an anthology of O’Faolain’s essays.
Sean O’Faolain (1900-1981) served in the Irish Republican Army as a young man.
He went on to be a Commonwealth fellow at Harvard University and an internationally respected short story writer, novelist and biographer.
His reputation came to be defined by his role as the leading public intellectual in post-independence Ireland.
This lecture will emphasize O’Faolain’s attempts to ensure that Ireland recognized its historical links to European culture.
This is a timely consideration in the wake of Brexit and other populist movements against the European Union.
Refreshments will be served and parking stubs for Îlot St-Patrick will be validated.
All are welcome. For further information phone Irish Heritage Quebec at 418-704-3404.
