Library Lunchtime Lecture by Chantal Kobel

Chantal Kobel will give the second lecture in our series of Lunchtime Lectures on ‘Intellectual life in Ireland 1910-1920’. This series accompanies a library exhibition on the same theme. 

This lecture will reflect on the influential career of Prof. Eleanor Knott, one of the first women to be made a member of the Royal Irish Academy, and her important contributions to scholarship in the area of Celtic Studies.

Speaker: Chantal Kobel obtained her B.A. in Old and Modern Irish in TCD and went on to achieve a Masters in Archives and Records Management in UCD. She recently completed her PhD in Early Irish at Trinity College Dublin. She lectures at the Department of Irish and Celtic Languages at Trinity College Dublin and the Department of Early Irish at National University of Ireland Maynooth. Her research interests centre on Old and Middle Irish language, the development of the language, early Irish literature and poetry, and textual editing.
