    Professor Pat Buckridge

Pat Buckridge retired as Professor of Literary Studies at Griffith University six years ago. His original areas of specialisation were medieval and Renaissance English literature, but most of his published research has been in the fields of Australian literature, biography and the history of reading. He has published a handful of articles and chapters over the years on Irish-Australian writing; as director of the Queensland Studies Centre he co-convened a conference on the Irish in Queensland in the 1990s; and at about the same time designed a unit on Irish literature for Open Universities Australia, which is still being offered.
