Biography

I studied for a B.A. in French and Spanish at Trinity College Dublin (awarded with first class honours in 1977), a H. Dip. Ed. (1978), and a Ph.D. (1985), which was funded for three years by Trinity College Dublin and in Paris for three years by the French Government, the École Normale Supérieure, the International Federation of University Women, and the Collège de France. While in Paris I also completed a Diplôme d’Études approfondies (1981) at the Université Paris Nanterre (Paris X). I taught at Trinity College Dublin for thirteen years as a Lecturer (1984-1996) and Senior Lecturer (1996-1997) in French, where I was also elected to Fellowship in 1990. I was appointed to the chair of French at National University of Ireland Maynooth in 1997. I have held Senior Visiting Fellowships in other Irish and European centres, notably the Herzog August Bibliothek, Wolfenbüttel (Germany), Linacre College Oxford, and Archbishop Marsh’s Library, Dublin. I was elected a member of the Royal Irish Academy in 2000 and a Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Palmes Académiques in 2007. Board Member of the Société de l’Histoire du Protestantisme français, Paris (2013-); Member of the Comité scientifique for the Cycle d'Études 'L'attachement religieux. Exercices de la foi, engagementspirituel et resignation en Europe moderne', Institut Protestant de Théologie and Université de Montpellier (2015-); Management Committee Member of the COST Action IS310, 'Reassembling the Republic of Letters, 1500-1800' (2014-2018).
