New Voices in Irish Criticism: "Legitimate Ireland"
19th – 21st April 2012
Institute of Irish Studies
Queen's University, Belfast
From plantations to Grattan's parliament, poitín distillers to the IMF bailout, the Irish have always had a fraught relationship with institutions of political, social and religious power. This raises questions surrounding the legitimacy of performative and systemic aspects of Irishness, which has been and continues to be in flux both north and south of the border.
