The Irish border has been a source of inspiration for fiction, non-fiction, art and photography.  It is a site for multiple and varied writing and research projects seeking to understand the everyday lives of border dwellers, activists, peacemakers, paramilitaries and smugglers. It is a border that runs through areas of natural beauty -- undulating hills, wetlands, lakes and rivers that continue to shape people’s engagement with a divided island. Soon, with Brexit, this border will become an EU frontier – changing once more in form and function.

The panel will consider representations of the border through time.  Our speakers include:

 

  • Garrett Carr, author of The Rule of the Land: Walking Ireland’s Border
  • Brian McGilloway, author of the Inspector Devlin series set in Tyrone/Donegal borderlands
  • Lorraine Dennis, Prisons Memory Archive
  • Anthony Haughey, Dublin Institute of Technology
  • Aisling O Beirne, Ulster University
  • Katy Hayward, Mitchell Institute
  • Ulrike Vieten, Mitchell Institute
