Audrey Robitaillié is interested in contemporary literature and Irish folklore, as well as the various ways in which they interact. Her PhD thesis (at Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Caen) investigated the folklore surrounding changelings and fairy abductions and its reuse in literature. She is the lead organiser of the interdisciplinary research forum, “New Crops, Old Fields – (Re)Imagining Irish Folklore”. Her article on changeling pipers is forthcoming in the journal Folklore (December 2017). She is also particularly interested in notions of home and belonging in contemporary literature, and has been researching the works of Colum McCann and Hugo Hamilton.
