Inaugural Briena Staunton Visiting Fellow Announced

Pembroke College Cambridge and Trinity College Dublin are delighted to announce the inaugural Briena Staunton Visiting Fellow.

Following an agreement between our two colleges, and generously endowed by Professor James Meaney, a leading international writer, nominated alternately by Pembroke and Trinity, will spend a month writing and supporting students in Dublin or Cambridge. Pembroke’s nomination for the first Fellow is  the distinguished novelist, short story writer and critic Adam Mars-Jones. Adam will spend March 2019 in Dublin, working with the School of English and with creative writing students at the Oscar Wilde Centre for Irish Writing.

The announcement was made in Cambridge on the evening of Friday 26th October, when Adam Mars-Jones joined novelist, memoirist and Pembroke alumnus Richard Beard to give a Masterclass in writing. Adam (R) is pictured here with Professor Meaney (L).
