Four University of Minnesota Morris students will present their research at the 70th Annual Irish History Students’ Association (IHSA) conference in Dublin, Ireland, this month. Inspired by¬†a conversation with author David Ebershoff, the students worked with Distinguished McKnight University Professor of English Michael Lackey to do serious research about the nature of biofiction.

Bailey Kemp, Claire Larson, Nora Lund, and Johannah Woodley first became interested in researching Irish biofiction after enrolling in Lackey’s class, where they read and analyzed biographical novels by Irish authors. Lackey urged them to submit their work to the conference.
