Lindsay Janssen is an assistant professor and postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures (MLC). She wrote a thesis on Irish and Irish-diasporic popular fiction from the period 1871-91, the Great Irish Famine and cultural identity formation, and obtained her PhD in 2016. Three years later, she was awarded a fulltime individual fellowship by the Irish Research Council. Affiliated to University College Dublin during this fellowship, she researched Irish transatlantic periodical culture between the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Since April 2020, Lindsay is part of the Heritages of Hunger research project (NWO/NWA). For this project, she studies educational practices concerning the Irish Famine in schools, museums and the heritage sector; she is also the coordinator of the project's open-access educational repository (currently in development). At the Department MLC, Lindsay teaches courses in the two-year educational master’s programme Education in Language and Cultural Studies, and the bachelor’s programme English Language and Culture.
