'Beyond the Berkeley: Ireland and the Sixties.'
Tuesday, 28 November 2017, 6 – 7:30pm
Historian Carole Holohan will address broader societal changes in the decade that gave us the Berkeley Library, with a particular focus on how economic, social and cultural developments affected young people. This lecture will focus on the position of youth in the Republic of Ireland at a time when the meaning of youth, and the nature of youth culture, was changing internationally.
Dr Carole Holohan is the Assistant Professor in modern Irish history at Trinity College Dublin. She is a social historian focused on the postwar period, with a particular interest in the history of youth and of poverty. Her first book is entitled Reframing Irish Youth in the Sixties and it will be published with Liverpool University Press early next year.
This event is being organized by the Library of Trinity College Dublin in association with the Department of History, Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin.
