All Campuses will now be closed for teaching and social activities

Following the clear imperative in the latest government advice to avoid all non-essential contact with others and avoid unnecessary travel, the decision has been made to suspend all teaching and social activities on campus and to close all libraries, sports facilities, theatres, catering facilities and cancel events.

We have further advice and guidance for our staff and students on our Covid-19 Corona Virus site

Cather Symposium - Hosted by Ulster University and the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre. Sponsored by the Willa Cather Foundation and the University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Hosted by Ulster University and the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre Sponsored by the Willa Cather Foundation and the University of Nebraska - Lincoln Set in the ancestral home of the Cather family, and taking place during the centennial of My Ántonia, the symposium will explore themes deeply resonant in Willa Cather’s life and work (including but not restricted to):

  • migration and immigration;
  • family legacy and inheritance;
  • gender and language;
  • and religious identity.

The symposium brings together established and new Cather scholars with Irish scholars and the local community. Visits to Cather family sites, along with social events involving Irish music and storytelling, will be part of the program. The Roe Valley area offers sublime coastal cliffs, mountains and ancient forests, historic ruins and landed estates. Tours of the Giants Causeway and the Walled City of Derry will complete the weekend.

Directors: Willa Murphy, Ulster University, and Aaron Callan, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council. Please send abstracts of up to 350 words to the Willa Cather Foundation’s education director, Tracy Tucker, at ttucker@willacather.org by 15 January 2018.
