Professor Declan Kiberd

Lecture by Professor Declan Kiberd “After Ireland: Writing the Nation from Beckett to the Present” on Friday 5 October 2018 at 19:30.

Professor Kiberd will talk about how Irish writers provided an early-warning system concerning many of the social and cultural problems which came to light only recently in journalism—e.g. crisis of faith; child abuse; financial scams by developers; conversion of parts of the country into touristic theme-park; frustrations of rural womanhood. He will also argue that the literature has a built-in auto-immune system which provides antidotes to the ills detected and which suggests more hopeful ways of configuring a future. The talk will, in its later stages, cover themes of multicultural Ireland and likely developments in the next two decades in cultural, social and religious life.

Reservations (pglib@monaco.mc) are essential due to the limited number of seats.

Entry 10 EUR per person payable at the door.

The doors will close at 19:30 sharp.
