Event description

About this Event

At the Galway International Arts Festival 2018, Uachtarán na hÉireann, Michael D. Higgins, in a lecture entitled ‘Home’, evoked Heidegger’s ever pertinent question: ‘what is it to dwell?’ Higgins remarked on the “... underlying assumption in favour of the universality of a fixed relationship with a specific space, and indeed perhaps a specific time. It displays a disposition so intrinsic to much of modern social science – one that finds it difficult to encompass the experience of movement or of the interstices, the space between spaces.”

As we witness national and international crises of home, the Centre for Irish Studies is hosting its Third Galway Conference to examine the question of what it is to dwell. What does it mean to be ‘at home’? How has Irish Studies historically engaged with conceptions of home and how might the discipline deal with changing definitions of home in the future?
