CANCELLED : Out of the Ashes - Lessons Learnt from a Painful Past

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Trinity Long Room Hub has had to cancel this lecture. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

This public lecture by Dr Saad Eskander (former National Librarian of Iraq) is organised by Trinity Long Room Hub as part of the Out of the Ashes Lecture Series.

About the series

This three-year lecture series explores the theme of cultural loss and recovery across the centuries, from the Library of Alexandria in antiquity to the destruction of the Public Record Office of Ireland at the outset of the Irish Civil War in 1922. Lectures will reflect on how societies deal with cultural trauma through reconstruction and commemoration, and on how the international community should respond to contemporary acts of cultural atrocity.

The series is global in scope, pan-historical and multi-disciplinary in approach, and features a panel of international scholars and practitioners of the highest calibre

Registration for this lecture will open in the coming month.

The 'Out of the Ashes' lecture series is generously supported by Sean and Sarah Reynolds.
