Representations of Jews in Irish Literature
NUI Galway is delighted to host an exhibition on the Representations of Jews in Irish Literature in the Hardiman Building foyer. The exhibition is the first major output of a three-year research project funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council and made in collaboration between NUI Galway and the Ulster University.
It charts the representations of Jewish identity, culture and life in Ireland from medieval through to modern times. It examines the portrayal of Jews in the literary record alongside the contribution of Irish-Jewish writers to Irish literature and celebrates this unique hyphenated identity.
