Mingling Water Identities
Friday, 4 October 2019, 6 – 7pm
A talk by Dr James Smith (TCD) as part of The Dublin Festival of History.
Attendees are asked to bring a small vial from a body of water with personal meaning to this event. After an introduction to his work on water and identity by Dr James Smith, they will be invited to share their stories with the other attendees in a community exercise. A group discussion on traits of water and how they influence our sense of place, history, identity and community will follow.
Dr James L. Smith is a Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellow based in the department of geography at Trinity College Dublin. His first monograph, Water in Medieval Intellectual Culture: Case-Studies from Twelfth-Century Monasticism, was published in 2018 and he is currently working on a deep mapping of Lough Derg, County Donegal.
