Caoimhín De Barra is the Assistant Professor for Irish History and Culture. His scholarly areas of interest are in the field of identity formation, especially the development and evolution of national and regional identities in Ireland, Britain and Europe. He also has a strong interest in comparative and transnational history. His published research has compared efforts to revive the Hebrew and Irish languages, as well as the influence of the Welsh language on the development of Irish cultural nationalism. He is the author of The Coming of the Celts: Celtic Nationalism in Ireland and Wales, 1860-1925 (Notre Dame University Press, 2018), which explores how nationalists in Wales and Ireland defined themselves in relation to their Celtic “other” at the turn of the twentieth century, studying each other and borrowing ideas from one another in seeking to forge new political and cultural movements in their respective nations. He offers graduate courses on nationalism, imperialism, Irish history and the history of the United Kingdom.
