Biography

Born in NYC to Irish-actor parents, Oona has lived in Ireland full-time since completing her Ph.D. at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York. She has held post-doctoral fellowships at Queen's University Belfast and Trinity College Dublin, and has lectured in the Department of English at Maynooth University since 2008. Oona's research interests lie in Irish Studies, particularly of the late 19th and 20th centuries; in Memory and Trauma Studies; in ecocriticism; and in writings of New Zealand and Australia. Oona is currently writing a book on postcolonial ecocriticism, comparing Irish, American, Australian and New Zealand literature for attitudes towards land development, waste, and the environment.

She has supervised students working on transnational literature, trauma studies, and ecocriticism, and is currently supervising a project on trauma, identity and ethics in mid-20th century Irish writing. As of 2019, she is also supervising creative writing PhDs and would welcome proposals in her academic research fields and in creative writing.

Oona is also a fiction writer. A Hennessy Award nominee, her first novel, Flight (2014), was the first publication of the acclaimed Tramp Press and was nominated for an Irish Book Award and a Literary Fiction Award. Her next novel is entitled My Amygdala, Charging, and she is currently writing another novel, All the Places I Was Not Born. She is represented by Lucy Luck at C&W (http://cwagency.co.uk/client/oona-frawley).


Research Interests

I work in several areas: Irish Studies, Memory Studies, ecocriticism, and 'global' fiction, with a particular interest in fiction of Australia and New Zealand. 

My work in Irish Studies has examined Irish literature's representation of 'nature' and place, tracing the ways in which that representation has been linked to nostalgia for a perceived lost past; this nostalgia has regularly been linked to periods of cultural and social upheaval. Irish Pastoral considered the 'nostalgic mode' in medieval and early modern literature before turning to the literature of the Irish Revival and beyond. Authors examined include Spenser, Yeats, Synge, Joyce, Heaney, and Boland.

My work on nostalgia as a form of memory led to the Memory Ireland series, a four-volume project that brought together over 60 contributors to define the field of Memory Studies in an Irish context, looking at the relationship between history, memory and modernity (Volume 1); diaspora and memory practice (Volume 2); what I term two 'cruxes of memory', the Famine and the Troubles (Volume 3); and James Joyce's representation of the Irish past as well as his position in Irish cultural memory (Volume 4).

Recent work has turned specifically to the issue of gender in relation to memory, with the at-press volume Women and the Decade of Commemorations analysing the representation of women in the revolutionary period and their subsequent remembrance or forgetting. 

My current research project looks at literature of Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the United States for the ways in which land has been commodified and/ or treated as 'waste' as a result of colonial practice. Drawing together my interests in ecocriticism and memory, the project seeks to provide a comparative take on 'post-colonial ecocriticism' in English-speaking countries.
