About RRK

Rhona Richman Kenneally is a professor and former Chair in the Department of Design and Computation Arts and a co-founder and Fellow of the School of Irish Studies at Concordia University. She is also the editor of the Canadian Journal of Irish Studies. She is the organizer of a Food Studies Research team under the umbrella of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture. She holds a BA in English Literature, an MA in Canadian History and a PhD and professional degree in architecture.

Her research and publications bring together the domains of food studies, sustainable design practice, and the architecture and design of the built environment to explore food-related activities, especially in the home in mid-twentieth-century Ireland and Canada. A second research thread focuses on landscapes of commemoration and memory: out of this arose publications on Grosse Ile, Quebec, and the Quiet Man Museum in Mayo, as well as a conference and exhibition on 1960s Montreal in conjunction with the Canadian Centre for Architecture.
