Sunday Symposium

Venue: glór
Date: Sunday, 06 March at 10.00

Our Sunday morning symposium will look slightly different this year with two great events planned to inspire and provoke.

Firstly, Professor Diarmaid Ferriter will reflect on the centenary year and offer some insights into A Nation and Not a Rabble: the Irish Revolution 1913 to 1923, which was recently shortlisted for the Bord Gáis Irish Book Award.

We follow Do It Like A Woman in which we reflect on the ways in which people are revolutionary today and, in particular, the leading role that women have played in the universal and ongoing struggle for equality. Ireland’s social change over the past 30 years, which has affected men and women alike, has more often than not been championed by women. Chaired by Catríona Crowe, the session will consider the myriad ways in which people are revolutionary. The panel includes Caroline Criado-Perez, author of Do It Like A Women, along with Susan McKay and Micheline Sheehy Skeffington.
