Initiated in 2020, the Irish Itinerary Podcast is the exciting digital version of our longstanding Irish Itinerary circuit which organises live events with Irish authors and artists in university cities and towns all over Europe. It seeks to contribute to transnational dialogues, conversations and discussions about contemporary Irish literature, music and art in and beyond Europe.
The Irish Itinerary Podcast allows Irish authors and artists active on the island of Ireland to present their work online. Hosted by leading Irish Studies scholars from the expansive network of EFACIS, the readings and performances of Irish authors and artists are integrated into interviews. This approach reaffirms and furthers our commitment to integrating cultural events and academic projects in the field of Irish Studies.
We thank Gerry Smyth for allowing us to use his tune 'Coming Through Sligo' as a jingle and want to express our sincere gratitude to Culture Ireland, the Department of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Ireland, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and the Irish College Leuven for their continued and generous support of EFACIS and all formats of the Irish Itinerary.
