Dr. Katherine O'Callaghan is a Visiting Lecturer at Mt. Holyoke College. Previous, she was an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral scholar at the School of English in Trinity College Dublin. Her PhD (University College Dublin), entitled The Space Between: Music and Language in the Writings of James Joyce, has formed the basis for a monograph now under completion.
Having taught at UCD, NUI Galway, NUI Maynooth (and spent a year as a postdoctoral researcher at Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris 3), Dr O'Callaghan passed 2012-2013 as a Visiting Fellow at the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana.
Regularly presenting papers at international Joyce conferences, she taught the Finnegans Wake seminar at the Dublin James Joyce summer school, and has contributed to RTE and BBC radio programmes on Joyce and music.
Her current research project is entitled Music and the Irish Novel, an exploration of music as a provocative and radical aspect of Irish novels written in English (1890-present). Her collection Memory Ireland Volume IV: James Joyce and Cultural Memory (co-edited with Oona Frawley) was published by Syracuse Press in Spring 2014.
