British and Irish World Research-in-progress sessions semester 1 2017-18




Please find below details of the British and Irish World group’s research-in-progress workshops for semester 1. We’re pleased to welcome papers from our new colleagues Linsey and Sophie, colleagues from elsewhere in the faculty (Matthew), and also from across the road (Sarah Campbell and Annie Tindley). As ever, the emphasis is very much on research in development, rather than work completed. We aim to provide a friendly and informal venue for the discussion of continuing research.


For all three workshops we will convene outside Lipman 116 (institute of Humanities).

Sophie Cooper (NU) – ‘Finding "Irishness" in the American Sisters of Mercy Archives’.
Sarah Campbell (Newcastle) – 'Remembering '68: The civil rights movement in Northern Irish memory'.

1/11/17 @ 1 pm
Annie Tindley (Newcastle) - 'Biography, empire and Ireland - writing elite Irish engagement with Britain's empire'.
