Simon’s article, entitled “Entre nationalisme irlandais et canadien-français : les intrigues québécoises de la Self Determination for Ireland League of Canada and Newfoundland“, will be published in the March 2011 number of the “Canadian Historical Review”.
This article is principally based on findings discovered at the UCD Archives Department, in the Éamon de Valera Fonds, during Simon’s stay as a ICUF scholar.
“the ICUF scholarship not only permitted me to find some still-overlooked archive materials but also to meet major scholars in my field“.
