Biography

Nessa Cronin is Lecturer in Irish Studies, Centre for Irish Studies, NUI Galway, Ireland and has published widely on various aspects of Irish writing, cultural geography and community mapping practices. She read English and Philosophy for her undergraduate degree at Trinity College, Dublin (1998) and received an MA in Continental Philosophy and Literature from Warwick University (2000). Her doctoral thesis, The Eye of History: Spatiality and Colonial Cartography in Ireland, focused on the visual and linguistic construction of the modern Irish map through a critical examination of four key moments in Irish cartographic history. She was awarded a PhD in Irish Studies by NUI Galway in 2007, and was the recipient of an IRCHSS Postgraduate Scholarship, Arts Faculty Fellowship, and a Notre-Dame Summer School Fellowship for her doctoral research.

Nessa is co-editor of Anáil an Bhéil Bheo: Orality and Modern Irish Culture (2009), Landscape Values: Place and Praxis (2016) and the forthcoming volume Lifeworlds: Space, Place and Irish Culture (2017). She is currently completing her monograph on the making of Irish colonial space, Making Space: Cartography and Colonial Governmentality in Ireland (forthcoming). She has been the recipient of 3 Irish Research Council awards, and bursaries from the European Science Foundation and Culture Ireland, and has been awarded visiting fellowships in University of Stanford, Univeristé de Nantes and University of Concordia.

She also works in the area of Environmental Humanities and Creative Geographies and has co-curated events and exhibitions such as Mapping Spectral Traces IV (Black Box Theatre, Galway 2012), Interpreting Landscape/Rianú Talún, (NUI Galway 2014) and is the Director of Iarsma: Fragments from an Archive, the Tim Robinson Artist-in-the-Archive Project (Galway 2015-16). She also works on community mapping projects in Clare, Galway and Mayo with artists, activists and community groups on socially-engaged projects investigating issues concerning place, language and culture in contemporary Ireland.  
    

Nessa’s current work on Irish Literary and Cultural Geographies has involved the development of the interdisciplinary Irish Place Studies network, Ómós Áite at the Centre for Irish Studies, NUI Galway, and she is the Irish co-convenor of the Mapping Spectral Traces International Collaborative in association with Dr Karen E. Till, Space&Place, Department of Geography, Maynooth University, Ireland.
She is interested in supervising research projects in the areas of Irish Cultural Geography, Irish Literature and Community Mapping and Socially-Engaged Arts Practice.
