About this event

Lunchtime Seminar

Performing Identities: Brexit and Northern Ireland - Part 1

'Performing Identities: Post-Brexit Northern Ireland and the reshaping of 21st Century Governance' is the full title of an academic research project that has been running since February 2019, comprising a team of academics both from and/or with specialist expertise of Northern Ireland, its politics, and Brexit.

A wide range of research has been completed as part of this project. Much of this has been presented in journal articles, blogs, parliamentary evidence, expert reports, and at conferences and seminars within the UK and internationally.

Members of the team also authored a book - 'Bordering Two Unions' (2018) - which is freely available to download here.

In this lunchtime seminar, PI team members will present key findings from this extensive catalogue of work, as well as analysis of research that will be publicly shared for the first time.

This session will include work on citizenship and rights, multilevel governance, archival research and key findings from a series of interviews conducted as part of the project exploring identity and Brexit in Northern Ireland.

The session will conclude with a Q&A, where registered participants are encouraged to engage in discussion with the team and to ask questions. The event will be hosted online using Zoom.

PI team members include:

  • Colin Murray (Newcastle University)
  • Dr. Sylvia de Mars (Newcastle University)
  • Prof. Aoife O'Donoghue (Durham University)
  • Dr. Ben Warwick (University of Birmingham)
  • Dr. Megan Armstrong (Liverpool John Moore's University)
  • Dr. Clare Rice (Newcastle University)

NOTE: This event is the first of two that the Performing Identities team will be hosting. The second - a panel discussion on identity, Brexit and Northern Ireland's future - will occur the following day, Thursday 24th June, at 1pm. This will also be a virtual event.

Further details and a link to register for this will be released soon.
