Dr. Anthony Barron has previously worked at University College Cork and Trinity College Dublin.
His commitment to promoting a public understanding of the history of ideas inspired his decision to form the Waterford Philosophical Society in 2005. Since then he has delivered weekly lectures on a diverse range of literary and intellectual topics to the members of that group. In 2011 he arranged the inaugural series of Bloomsday events in Waterford. Owing to his efforts, Bloomsday has been celebrated in Waterford on an annual basis since that year.
Anthony’s research interests are interdisciplinary in nature and span a wide range of areas within and between Philosophy, English Literature and Theology. He has a particular passion for examining the means by which the history of ideas interrelates with the world of the arts.
