RECORDINGS: The Irish Proust Keynotes

The Irish Proust was a two-day conference which took place in October 2022 and brought together scholars and writers from Ireland, France, the UK, and North America to explore the French novelist’s influence on Irish literature as well as Irish themes within his writing. By delving into what is Irish within Proust and Proustian within Irish letters, ‘The Irish Proust’ aimed to shed new light on the greatest French novel of the twentieth century and its far-reaching cultural significance.

Recordings of two of the keynote lectures—“Proust and Wilde” by Prof. Elisabeth Ladenson of Columbia University and “Proust, Ireland, and the Socio-Economic Language of the Novel” by Prof. Barry McCrea of the University of Notre-Dame—are now available on the MoLI website HERE
