Nicholas James Kennedy’s alma mater is University College Cork (Ireland) from where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Modern History (1994-1997). The academic year 1997-1998 was spent on scholarship to Colby College (Maine, USA) where he researched the first year of his Master’s Degree in Modern English Literature (The African American Female Gothic: Re-membering Her-story and the Expression of an Unspeakable Sexuality) and worked as a research assistant for the English department’s chair. This Master’s degree was similarly awarded by University College Cork (1999). In UCC he tutored both poetry and drama to undergraduates.

In Spain, he completed the Máster Universitario en Formación del Profesorado de Educación Secundaria (UPNA, 2013) and received his PhD (UPNA) in 2018.  Research interests include literature in the language classroom (especially poetry and short stories). 

He tries to practise what he preaches though, and has published poetry in a couple of Irish literary magazines (Cork Literary Review and The Honest Ulsterman).

He has also worked on European projects as the Spanish representative for SteLLLa  (a loose acronym of the "Stimulation of eLearning for Life Long Learning for adults", a partnership of 10 European partners from Belgium, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Poland and Spain supported by the EU Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) and sub-programme GRUNDTVIG).

He also developed and instructed on an online pilot course for judges in the Consejo General de Poder Judicial.

He worked for 13 years in CNAI (Centro Navarro de Autoaprendizaje de Idiomas), predominantly giving language classes to INAP’s (in the Vascuence e Idiomas Comunitarios area) public sector employees and using new technologies and literature therein.

Apart from working in tertiary education, he currently spends the other half of his professional life working as the English specialist in the 2º ESO MEDAP interdisciplinary projects in Jesuitinas Pamplona.
