Welcome to the Trinity Long Room Hub. We run a major public humanities initiative, connecting diverse communities across Ireland and the world with the perspectives of the Arts and Humanities. Further to workshops, seminars and public lectures, (many of which are available to listen to here or watch here), we also have a popular Behind the Headlines discussion series and a range of other lecture series which are currently underway, including Out of the Ashes and Trinity and the Changing City. During Covid-19 we have adapted our events programming to an online only audience, and we hope that you can join us for one of these discussions. This year’s programme of events is as exciting as ever, so don’t miss out! For more on our public events, sign up to our newsletter here.
