19 December 2020: Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University Louise Richardson

Last month Professor Louise Richardson, Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University, delivered the 13th Annual Irish Institute Lecture on the topic of Seamus Heaney. Professor Richardson worked alongside Seamus while both were at Harvard University, a period during which he also served as Oxford Professor of Poetry.  Professor Richardson, for her lecture entitled “Airs and Graces”, was introduced by Professor Kevin Kenny and the President of New York University, Andy Hamilton.  Funding to endow this lecture series was generously granted by the Irish Institute of New York, which has been dedicated to the support and promotion of the finest in Irish culture since 1950 and has been a supporter of Glucksman Ireland House NYU since the beginning.
