The Maynooth conference will offer an opportunity for specialists in history, economics, cultural studies, geography, literature and the arts to discuss the famines in both Ireland and Ukraine and their respective place in historiography and memorial culture in a comparative perspective. The conference will feature five panels, devoted to the issues of (i) latest research, (ii) recent historiography (iii) memorial culture as materialized in monuments, museums or exhibitions and (iv) the famines in literature and cinema. A concluding round table will discuss the Irish and Ukrainian cases against the backdrop of global experience. Mr. Jim Callery, the founder of Irelandís famine museum at Strokestown House, will deliver the keynote lecture. The full programme is available for download at www.widereurope.ie.
