The Historian and the contemporary Irish crisis

Diarmaid Ferriter (Professor of Modern History at University College, Dublin) will be speaking at this year's John Coffin Memorial Irish Studies Lecture at the Institute of English Studies (a member institute of the University of London's School of Advanced Study)

Diarmaid Ferriter is one of the most influential commentators on Ireland in the 20th Century, with work that spans social, cultural and political history. His major publications: 'The Transformation of Ireland 1900-2000' (2004); 'Judging Dev: A Reassessment of the Life and Legacy of Eamon de Valera' (2007) - which won in three categories of the 2008 Irish Book Awards - and 'Occasions of Sin: Sex and Society in Modern Ireland' (2009), share a capacity to challenge and inform public perception of Irish life both past and present. As well as his academic tracts, Diarmaid Ferriter is the host of 'What If', a radio programme that broadcasts weekly on RTÉ 1; and in June 2010 he co-wrote and presented a 3-part television series for RTÉ, 'The Limits of Liberty', which considered the political underpinning of independent Ireland. As well as being an influential historian, he is a public intellectual, whose dynamic and engaging work has brought a new charge and freshness to the discipline.
The lecture is free an open to the public, and will be followed by a wine reception.
