Please join us at the Embassy for a hybrid event with inaugural Travelling Professor in Irish Studies, Lance Pettitt, on Thursday 21st April 2022. 

Prof Pettitt has just completed a semester as the first Travelling Professor in Irish Studies, during which he delivered courses on representations of Ireland and the Irish border in writing, film, and other visual media to students on the English degree programme at Wuppertal University.

Prof. Pettitt is an expert on Irish film and the author of numerous books (Screening Ireland, 2000/2023; The Last Bohemian, 2022) and essays on Irish cinema, television, and cultural history. His current research focuses on Eugene McCabe’s television work and the influence of religion on Irish film.

Prof Pettitt will join us for a wide-ranging discussion on Irish film, his experience of teaching Irish culture to German students, the future of Irish Studies as an academic discipline, and how educational initiatives like the Travelling Professorship can contribute to Ireland’s image abroad.
