an interdisciplinary workshop at Trinity College, Dublin
23 & 24 April 2009
This inter-disciplinary workshop will examine the relationship between the arts, the state, national/regional identity, and the wealth of nations. The speakers will compare and contrast the changing relationships between the arts, national/regional identity and the state in two comparable European nations: Ireland and Scotland. They will consider the ‘wealth of nations’ in both cultural and financial terms.
The workshop will focus on three areas of the arts which relate specifically to these questions in an Irish and Scottish context: museums and built heritage; traditional and folk music; and literature and drama.
Pre-registration is essential. To register, or ask for further details about the workshop, please contact Dr. Jason McElligott (firstname.lastname@example.org)
