A while back, I posted about an exciting plenary lecture to be given at this year’s ECIS conference by Professor James Chandler (University of Chicago). The lecture is titled ‘Maria Edgeworth, Edmund Burke and the First Irish Ulysses’, and it’s being hosted by the Royal Irish Academy as part of its Academy Discourses series. The lectures in this series are open to the public and tend to attract very large audiences, so pre-registration is essential to avoid disappointment. This can be done, free of charge, here. Do take a moment to register if you’re planning to attend the lecture, or else you might be stuck standing or, worse, turned away!
