Event description

Description

It is necessary to look beyond the Anglo-Irish paradigm and consider the bonds between the Celtic nations, particularly the place of independence, equality and commemoration in their respective literatures. This talk by Kirsty Lusk will focus on Irish-Scottish connections from Parnell to Partition, providing a deeper understanding of the unique relationship between two nations whose identities have been defined in relation to their dominant neighbour. Current political concerns reinforce the need to consider the literary links between the two nations, historical and contemporary, and the divergent roads to independence.

Includes wine reception.
