Event description
The 2022 J.C. Beckett Memorial lecture: 'Ancestral Voices: Dillon and Parnell’ by Professor Paul Bew takes place on site in PRONI.

About this event

The Ulster Society of Irish Historical Studies (USIHS) and the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) are delighted to invite you to the 2022 annual J.C. Beckett lecture which takes place onsite at PRONI.

The scale of Dillon/Parnell tension has been downplayed for far too long. Even before the divorce crisis there were numerous explosions. The complex social and family background is relevant. After Parnell's death ,the career of Dillon is analysed in the context of the efforts made by other nationalists to offer a strategy of Parnellism without Parnell.

Paul Bew is Emeritus Professor at the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics at Queen’s University Belfast and a life peer in the House of Lords.
