Research Profile

Patrick O'Donovan

Biography

My interest in French is centred on modern and contemporary literature and thought. At present, the large-scale projects on which I'm working extend over three main areas: fiction and poetry in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries (writers on whom I'm working just now include Vigny and Proust); the issue of the limit in French thought today (I'm interested, in other words, in problems of the sort which prompt Michel Foucault to characterize philosophy as a practice that consists in adopting a limit stance); and the implications for our understanding of modernity of the distinct ways in which it is conceptualized in the literature and the thought of Benjamin Constant.

To find out more about this work, please visit my personal website.

My teaching covers these and several other areas. I am glad to hear at any time from interested postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers, and you can find out more about areas in which I can offer supervision and mentorship in these pages.

I was appointed to the Professorship of French in UCC in 1994. I have served on several occasions as Head of the Department of French, and have also been Head of the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, and Vice-Head for Research in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences. From 2015 to 2017, I was Head of the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences.

I am a graduate of UCC, where I obtained an M.A. I also studied in the Université de Paris-Sorbonne and in the University of Cambridge, where I was a member of Jesus College and where I obtained a Ph.D. I taught for a time in the University of Dundee and then in St John's College, Oxford. I was a Fellow of King's College, Cambridge, from 1989 to 1994.

I have had a number of other research and scholarly responsibilities. I am a former editor of the journal French Studies and am now a member of its Advisory Board, and am also a former President of the Association d'Études Françaises et Francophones d'Irlande. I have also been a member of the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences (now incorporated into the Irish Research Council). I was founding Chairperson of the Irish Humanities Alliance in 2013–14. I am at present a member of the board of the European Alliance for the Social Sciences and the Humanities.
