Dr. Niamh Nicghabhann

Biography

I am Assistant Dean, Research for the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, and senior lecturer in the Department of History, UL. I was the founding Course Director of the MA Festive Arts programme at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick between 2013-2020.
My research focuses on the construction of the devotional infrastructure of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I am particularly interested in the construction of church buildings, and on the interactions between procession, architecture and the performance of religious identity in public space.
My research also includes work on Irish art, the history of exhibitions, aspects of festivity, cultural policy and the creative industries.
I welcome expressions of interest from potential research students interested in working on the above areas.
I am currently Chair of the Irish Humanities Alliance, and a committee member of the Catholic Historical Society of Ireland. I am also a committee member of the Society for the Study of Nineteenth-Century Ireland.








Research Interests

My research focuses on aspects of power and public space, and my current research project is titled 'Territories of the Devotional Revolution', and examines the construction of the urban Roman Catholic landscape in Ireland, 1830-1930. I am also interested in the concept of 'respectability' as a key organising concept within Irish culture and society in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

My research interests also include the dynamics of urban public space and festivity; the history of respectability in Irish culture; cultural entrepreneurship; and interdisciplinary research practices.
I also regularly work as a curator and writer on contemporary art.

Research MA and PhD supervision: I currently supervise MA and PhD theses at UL on the subjects of audience engagement, creative pedagogies, measurement and value in the visual art gallery, and on a range of issues relating to festival, festive practices, public space and identity.

I welcome new research proposals on these and related topics.

Outreach

  • Public engagement/ outreach events
