About this event

The Faculty of Arts at MIC celebrates 30 years of its landmark BA Liberal Arts this year. In celebration we are holding a series of public lectures from January to March which will showcase some of the excellent academics who form part of the Faculty talking about various subjects which fascinate them and everybody is welcome. So whether you are interested in the power of psychology, the search for the remains of the Earl of Lucan, a unique and interesting insight into the mind and life of a native Irish speaker from afar through the literary treasure of poet Pádraig Phiarais Cúndún, learning about the unknown Irish writer and illustrator behind a well-loved East German children's book, or the thorny question of who wrote the plays of William Shakespeare; or indeed if you just fancy a bit of brain tingling stimulation then come along and be part of our celebrations!
