Border Heritage Conference 2019
The Irish Humanities Alliance (IHA), in collaboration with Ulster University, are pleased to announce a multi-disciplinary conference on the theme of border heritages. The conference will take place on 24-25 October 2019. What do we mean when we talk about borders? In the context of Brexit and the approaching centenary of partition, the political border on the island comes to mind, but the term is ultimately expansive and allows us to consider multiple aspects of how we live and interact with our neighbours and our landscape.
This event will offer opportunities to build links for collaboration between researchers, and organisations working in this area and will allow for an expansive discussion on the theme of border heritages from a multi-disciplinary perspective. The conference theme allows for a wide-ranging exploration of how we can understand division and integration through the prism of heritage. The conference will take place on the Magee Campus of Ulster University, which is only a few miles from the border with Donegal.
