Biography

Pól Ó Dochartaigh is Registrar and Deputy President at NUI Galway. He hails from Belfast, where he was educated at St. Mary's Christian Brothers' Grammar School. Having abandoned a degree in Pure Maths and Computer Science at Queen's and subsequently spending a year working in Munich and another studying in Kiel, he graduated in German from University College Cardiff in 1987. After two years teaching English at Rostock University in the GDR he undertook a PhD in German literature at Nottingham University, graduating in 1995 with a thesis on "Representations of Jews in GDR Literature". He took a Postgraduate Certificate in University Teaching at the University of Ulster in 1997 and in 2004 graduated BA in Irish Language and Literature with first-class honours, also at Ulster, following five years of part-time study.
He lectured German at Maynooth in 1990-91 and, after a brief sojourn in Derby took up a position as Lecturer in German at Ulster in 1994. In 2001 he was promoted to Senior Lecturer and in 2005 to Professor of German. From 2005-8 he was founding Director of the Humanities Research Institute at Ulster and from 2008-14 Dean of the Faculty of Arts. He also led a successful bid to secure a Confucius Institute for Northern Ireland and was its Dean 2011-14. In spring 2014 he was appointed Registrar and Deputy President at NUI Galway.
Pól's research stretches across history, literature and politics in a German-Jewish-Irish triangle. He is the author of five books and 40+ articles and reports, and the editor or co-editor of six collections of essays. He directed a Hefce-funded project (£144k) on Assessment in Modern Languages at Ulster (1998-2001), was a Founding Member of the International Feuchtwanger Society for the study of German-Jewish exile (Los Angeles, 2001) and was a visiting professor at the University of Vienna's Institut für Sprachwissenschaft in 2003. He chaired the Royal Irish Academy's Committee for Modern Language, Literary and Cultural Studies (2004-8), and was elected Vice-President (2008-11) and then President (2011-14) of the Association for German Studies in Great Britain and Ireland. He has been elected a Member of the Royal Irish Academy, a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in the UK. He served on the German Panel for the UK's Research Assessment Exercise 2008 and on the Modern Languages and Linguistics Panel for the Research Excellence Framework 2014. In 2013 he was awarded £408k as PI by the Arts and Humanities Research Council for a three-year project on "Representations of Jews in Irish Literature". Since 2016 the exhibition from the project has opened in seven locations in all four of Ireland's provinces as well as Columbia University in New York, the Irish Writers' Festival in Los Gatos, California, Georgetown University in Washington, DC, and the Mickve Israel Synagogue in Savannah, Georgia, while the volume itself is currently at the editing stage.
In January 2018 he had the great honour of introducing and interviewing Holocaust survivor Tomi Reichental at a Holocaust Memorial Day event at Ulster University in Belfast.
