MU English in the Community: Spaces and Places in recent Irish Fiction with Dr. Michael Cronin

This talk will encourage readers to think about the significance of place in recent Irish fiction. How do Irish novelists write about the landscape in their fiction? Is there a distinctive 'spatial imaginary' in contemporary Irish writing? And how does the depiction of spaces and places in a novel encourage us as readers to reflect on our relationship with our physical and social environment, and with each other?
