Dr. Sorcha De Brun

Biography

Dr. de Brún is a Lecturer in modern Irish in the University of Limerick with a specialism in masculinities. A qualified teacher and an award-winning writer of creative fiction in Irish, in 2007 she commenced her PhD funded by the John and Pat Hume Scholarship in Maynooth University. In 2016 she completed her PhD in the University of Ulster on masculinities in the fiction of Pádraig Ó Cíobháin, Joe Steve Ó Neachtain and Micheál Ó Conghaile. Prior to moving into academia in 2002, she enjoyed a successful career as an organist, pianist and choral director, including Irish language choirs, working in a variety of settings, including music schools, churches and festivals. Before commencing in the University of Limerick, she held lectureships and research supervisor positions in St. Patrick's College, Drumcondra (Dublin City University), the University of Ulster, Hibernia College Dublin and Maynooth University. Sorcha has extensive experience of teaching Irish to the public service sector, including Enterprise Ireland, the IDA and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. She has taught Irish internationally in France, the United States and Hungary, as well as having worked with all the major Irish language and Gaeltacht organizations in Ireland. She has experience of judging literature competitions, including as President for the European Prize for Literature in 2009 and Jury member in 2019. Sorcha has been Irish language Consultant for the Secretary General of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltachts, and for An Chomhairle Um Oideachas Gaeltachta agus Gaelscolaíochta. In 2017 she developed and wrote the first Irish language course for Special Needs Assistants in Irish language schools which was used subsequently to train SNA's by Gael-Linn/An Chomhairle Um Oideachas Gaeltachta agus Gaelscolaíochta. Her thesis on masculinities in Irish language literature, the first study of its kind, resulted in the term fireannachtaí being introduced in the Irish language terminology database on www.tearma.ie.

http://www.tearma.ie/Search.aspx?term=masculinity Her monograph on Masculinities, funded by Fochoise na bhFoilseachán and the Royal Irish Academy, will be published by Arlen House in 2021.

Research Interests

Dr. de Brún's research focuses on masculinities, gendered relations and the intersectionality of class with gender in Irish language fiction, radio drama, film, poetry, literary translation and autobiography. Her research focuses in particular on narratology, and on the use of literary devices in the development of multiple masculinities in Irish language fiction. Sorcha also continues to research gothic masculinities and the process by which masculinities are reconfigured in remediated texts. Sorcha was also successful co-applicant and co-researcher on the National Strategy for the Irish Language Based Arts, Straitéis d'Ealaíona Teangabhunaithe. The research project valued at €35,000 was awarded to UL and Mary Immaculate College in August 2019. Sorcha is currently working on her monograph on masculinities in Irish language fiction, to be published by Arlen House in December 2021 and funded by the Royal Irish Academy.
