Brendan Kane Mentioned in RTE Article on Irish Language Learning

Brendan Kane, Associate Professor of History and Associate Director of the Humanities Institute at the University of ConnecticutUConn History Professor Brendan Kane’s work to make learning early modern Irish accessible has been featured in RTÉ Brainstorm, a segment of the Irish public press that highlights academic research that contributes to broader discussions about Ireland and Irish culture. Instead of making a New Year’s Resolution to “run a marathon” or “master sourdough,” the article encourages readers to learn Irish as a part of their “new year, new me” goals.  Brendan Kane’s  collaborative initiative, the Léamh project, offers tools to make reading early modern Irish fun, innovative, and equitable.
