Identity Politics and Memory Contests
Tuesday, 10 December 2019, 2 – 5pm
A postgraduate seminar organised by the Identities in Transformation Research Theme.
Our identity, personal and collective, is a shaping force in every individual’s life. These identities influence our perception of self, career paths, economic performance, and even foreign policy. But what happens when our sense of identity conflicts with the chosen narrative of our community? Examining case studies in statuary, foreign service, and commemorations, this seminar will explore identities in transformation tracing connections of past and present concepts of Irishness in local, regional, national, and transnational contexts.
This seminar is the first of the 2019/2020 series of postgraduate-led seminars in the Identities in Transformation theme, and has been organized by Caitlin White (School of Histories & Humanities), Clare Morrison (School of Histories & Humanities) and Joel Herman (School of Histories & Humanities).
We invite you to join us for this interdisciplinary event. Members of the public are welcome.
