Maebh Long is a Senior Lecturer in the English Programme in the School of Arts. Her principle areas of research and teaching are modernist and contemporary literature from Ireland, Britain, and Oceania. She also has particular interest in Literary Theory and Continental Philosophy. She has published widely on Brian O’Nolan/Flann O'Brien, and is the author of Assembling Flann O'Brien (London: Bloomsbury, 2014), an award-winning monograph of theoretical engagements with O’Nolan’s works. She is currently editing the letters of O’Nolan for publication, and she will be giving a keynote address at the Society’s conference in Salzburg this year.
Her publications on the works of Jacques Derrida led to a Visiting Professorship at New York University, and the research conducted during her time there has formed the beginnings of a new monograph, tentatively entitled The Poetics of Immunology. This work explores discourses of desire and anxiety that are performed in the defence, exposure, and attack of the immune and autoimmune self.
She is also co-investigator of the Oceanic Modernism project, which reads the burst of literary creativity in Oceania, coinciding with the wave of independence and indigenous rights movements in the 1960s, as a form of modernism. This project has resulted in international conferences and symposia, and a number of edited collections and special issues are forthcoming.
