Heritage Week - Matters French: An Online Exhibition

Matters French offers an overview of some of the connections between Ireland & France from the Anglo-Normans to Beckett. These interconnected traditions are represented in UCC Library's collections. Since the Anglo-Norman conquest Ireland has witnessed contacts with France that straddled confessional & political divisions. Irish scholars & intellectuals took refuge in Paris & Louvain, where Irish-language materials could be printed & where French was to become a medium of antiquarian & historical research that took Ireland as its object. Huguenot exiles arriving in Ireland created new French-speaking communities. Ireland looked to Revolutionary France in its quest for independence.

Heritage Week - Matters French: an online exhibition is curated by Prof. Patrick O'DonovanDept. of French, UCC. For further information about Matters French see the introduction to the exhibition.
