Clíona Ó Gallchoir was appointed as a lecturer in the School of English in UCC in 1999, having previously lectured in University College Dublin.  She graduated from UCD with a BA in English and German in 1992, having spent a year as a DAAD scholar at the University of Tuebingen, and subsequently received an MA in Anglo-Irish Literature, also from UCD.  She completed a PhD at Trinity College Cambridge in 1998, where she was the recipient of the Robert Gardiner Scholarship. 


Research Interests

My research interests include Irish women's writing, Irish and British eighteenth and nineteenth-century writing, the figure of the child in eighteenth-century Ireland, the novel in Ireland, and children's literature.  

I am an expert on the work of Maria Edgeworth, who is the subject of my monograph, Maria Edgeworth: Women, Enlightenment and Nation (2005).  In this book I place Edgeworth's writing in the context of contemporary theories of women's writing, nationality and social change. I also edited several volumes in the Pickering and Chatto Novels and Selected Works of Maria Edgeworth and have published essays and articles on other women writers such as Sydney Owenson, Germaine de Stael, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Mme de Genlis.

I also research and teach in the area of children's literature, an interest arising in part from a two-year leave of absence (2007-2009), when I worked as a volunteer teacher trainer with VSO in Eritrea, NE Africa.  In 2011, I received a Canadian government grant to pursue research on Irish-Canadian children's fiction. In 2012, I received Irish Research Council Funding to organize a conference on 'Children, Migration and Multiculturalism'. 

Current Projects:

A History of Modern Irish Women's Literature. Co-edited with Heather Ingman; forthcoming from Cambridge University Press in 2016.

A book on Childhood and Eighteenth-Century Ireland

An article on Protestant Masculinity in Eighteenth-Century Ireland

An article on the representation of race in Irish children's literature of the Celtic Tiger period
