UL English lecturer wins Robert Rhodes Prize for Books on Literature

image3Congratulations to Dr Tina Morin (School of English, Irish and Communication), who was recently awarded the prestigious Robert Rhodes Prize for Books on Literature for her monograph The Gothic Novel in Ireland, c. 1760-1829. The prize is named in honour of a founding member of the American Conference for Irish Studies, which held its annual gathering in Boston, 20-23 March 2019.

In awarding the Rhodes prize to Morin, the prize committee cited her book as ‘a masterful study’ that makes ‘a serious intervention [into] the field of Irish Studies, not only because of its important and corrective re-focusing but also because of its recuperative work that repositions a vast number of texts hitherto written out of the literary canon’.

Dr Morin joins an illustrious list of past recipients, including Edna Longley, Sinead Mooney, and Declan Kiberd. The Gothic Novel in Ireland is available from Manchester University Press or may be read online via the open access platform OAPEN.
