Autumn/ Winter Lecture Series 2016

We’re delighted to announce that the beginning of our Autumn/ Winter Lecture Series is just around the corner and we’ve got a programme that’s sure to entertain and intrigue in equal measure. This season, we continue our centenary celebration of the publication of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and the 1916 Rising with a series of talks in which politics, history, memory and commemoration loom large.

We look forward to seeing you all over the course of the coming weeks and months!
