MISS Online: Vincent Hearnes and the cultural landscape of Irish Australia

MISS Online: Vincent Hearnes and the cultural landscape of Irish Australia

1 December, 2020. This seminar will focus on the life of an exceptional yet little-known Irish-Australian, Vincent Joseph Hearnes (1903-1986). A talented artist, engineer and writer, Hearnes spent much of his life studying the Irish language, and creating illuminated manuscripts that drew inspiration from sources such as the Book of Kells. Nevertheless, he never set foot in Ireland.
