THE FUTURE STATE OF IRELAND

November 10, 2012 § Leave a comment

This forthcoming conference, part of a project of the same name, is taking place at Goldsmiths, University of London and will seek over the course of the two days:

to examine the repercussions of the crash for an island on the periphery of Europe from a cultural perspective. Examining cultural responses both pre and post economic meltdown, the conference will explore the possibilities of a new post-crisis Ireland: from the highly visible to the barely perceptible consequences of the crash and austerity, sources and limits of citizen resilience in crisis, the perceived value of cultural responses and active/passive citizenships. It will provide an opportunity for leading thinkers and practitioners across different disciplines to come together to discuss artists’ and citizens’ reactions and resilience in times of crisis and austerity.

A programme of visual and live art focused on crisis, resilience and endurance will intersect the conference schedule. 

Speakers include Fintan O’Toole, Professor Roy Foster, Troubling Ireland Think Tank (of which Helen Carey is a project participant) and Kennedy Browne amongst others. The key organisers are Dr. Derval Tubridy, Stephanie Feeney and Nicola Bunbury. The conference takes place on 17-18 November, 2012 and full details regarding speakers and booking can be found here.
