After the creation of the Premio George Campbell, the third edition of which is being prepared, the Aula María Zambrano de Estudios Transatlánticos of the University of Málaga will once again count on José Antonio Sierra as patron of this new prize, which will be named after Kate O’Brien (1897-1974), an outstanding Irish writer, who throughout her life was interested in Spain through her work: Mary Lavelle, That Lady, Farewell Spain, and Teresa de Ávila.
This award is part of the Spain-Ireland Awards of the Aula María Zambrano de Estudios Transatlánticos of the University of Málaga, which seek to open new fields of research in various areas concerning relations between Spain and Ireland. To this end, three awards covering different disciplines have been devised. In addition to the George Campbell Prize and the Kate O'Brien Prize, the Robert Boyd Prize, which focuses on the historical relations between the two countries, will be created later.
The Aula María Zambrano de Estudios Transatlánticos of the University of Málaga, entity organizing the award, whose web page is available at www.uma.es/amzet, is an academic, inter-university and multidisciplinary initiative, which arises from the need to create collaborative links and knowledge transfer between the different countries that make up the Atlantic World.
