Our Roots Travel Widely: Irish Poetry Beyond Regionalism and Nationalism

Linen Hall Library 17 Donegall Square North, Belfast, United Kingdom

This symposium will explore mid-century Irish poetry’s rich web of affiliations, reconceptualising the period from Partition to the Troubles by bringing to light forgotten cross-border collaborations, transnational connections, feminist, ecocritical, socialist, and working-class perspectives. Led by Dr Gail McConnell (Queen’s University Belfast) and Dr Karl O’Hanlon (Maynooth University), this symposium is the second public event of ‘Irish Poetry Beyond Regionalism and Nationalism’, a two-year project funded by the Higher Education Authority under the North-South Research Programme of the Shared Island Initiative. Dr Lucy Collins, Associate Professor in the School of English, Drama and Film at University College Dublin, will deliver the keynote lecture.

Stitching for Solidarity

Linen Hall Library 17 Donegall Square North, Belfast, United Kingdom

Stitching for Solidarity is a thought-provoking exhibition that highlights the poignant narratives woven into the fabric of resistance. In
collaboration with Conflict Textiles, we are delighted to present 12 arpilleras from 1976, '77, and '78, acquired in Chile by a member of the
Chile Solidarity Committee of Berlin. These arpilleras, expertly mounted on Irish linen, are exhibited together for the first time, marking a historic occasion. Additionally, this collaboration marks the inaugural merging of Chilean hessian and Irish linen by Conflict Textiles, adding a unique dimension to the exhibition.
