Past students will remember Patrick Quinlivan, a founding teacher at UWC Adriatic, who retired in 1991.
Patrick died on 14th July last year. He taught English B at the College, but his first degree, and his great love was history. English and history were combined in his annual ‘Hemingway trail’ round the WW1 sites on the Carso.
The Professor of History, Don MacRaild, from the University of Northumbria showed an interest in his specialist library and papers, which dealt with 19th century Irish politics. The University is offering the ‘Patrick Quinlivan Scholarship’ for a Masters in Research (M Res) in the coming academic year, followed by a three year doctoral studentship.
Patrick left Duino in 1997, when his wife, Valerie, Head of English, returned to England to take up a post at Essex University. They both travelled extensively, in spite of Patrick’s worsening health, enjoying contact with friends from all over the world, but especially in Italy.
Many friends and ex-colleagues came to his funeral in Colchester last July. Patrick is buried in Ireland.
From the University of Northumbria website:
These studentships are open to home/EU and International students.
The Arts MRes is an innovative new programme offered by the highly research-active Department of Arts. It enables postgraduate students to embark upon a closely-supervised piece of original research within a broad spectrum of Arts disciplines, including Film Studies, Art History, Design History, Cultural Management and also subjects such as Fine Art and Performing Arts which can involve more practical assessment with a shorter written element. Drawing on research expertise within the Department, the programme provides a sound academic grounding for those students considering further postgraduate study, particularly doctoral research.
The application deadline for these studentships is Friday 22 June with interviews taking place the week commencing Tuesday 3 July.
