We have a very exciting guest speaker coming to the Staff Postgrad Seminars next Tuesday in the Hub: Professor Lionel Pilkington from NUI Galway. His paper will be entitled “In it for the sheer love of it: Theatre, Actors, and Neoliberal Capitalism in Ireland c. 1979-1986”.
Prof Pilkington’s research focuses on Irish drama, theatre and Irish cultural history, postcolonialism and Irish studies, and culture and politics in Northern Ireland. His published works include Theatre and the State in 20th Century Ireland: Cultivating the People (2001) and Gender and Colonialism (1995).
We’re delighted to be welcoming Prof Pilkington, and will be hosting a wine reception after his talk in the Hoey Ideas Space of the Hub. Hope to see you all on Tuesday at 5!
