Clare CarrollClare Carroll

Clare Carroll is both Professor of Comparative Literature Department and Director of Honors in the Humanities. She does research in Renaissance Studies, with particular interests in early modern colonialism, epic poetry, and historiography. Her most recent book is Ireland and Postcolonial Theory (Cork University Press and Notre Dame University Press, 2003). She is also the author of Circe’s Cup: Cultural Transformations in Early Modern Writing about Ireland (Cork University Press, 2002) and The Orlando Furioso, A Stoic Comedy (Medieval and Renaissance Texts & Studies, 1997). With Vincent Carey, she edited Richard Beacon's humanist dialogue on the colonization of Ireland, Solon His Follie (1996). She is also the editor of the Early Modern Period in the Longman Anthology of British Literature (2003) and of the Longman Cultural Edition of Othello and Tragedy of Mariam (2003).

In addition to teaching courses in Comparative, Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance literatures, she has taught both the advanced seminar and the introductory Irish language course in Irish Studies. When Carroll won the President's Award for Excellence in Teaching back in 1993, one of her students commented: "She encourages us to disagree, debate, and discuss. Most important, she gets us to think."
