Event description

Description

This seminar is organized on the occasion of the tercentenary of the rescue of the Polish Princess Maria Clementina Sobieska from captivity in Innsbruck in April 1719 by a small group of Irish people and one French woman in a most dramatic fashion.

The rescue itself will be retold on the 30 April 2019 and complemented by other perspectives offered by six world-class historians. The seminar will commence with an opening address by Professor Marian Lyons (NUIM) to be followed by papers from Dr Declan Downey (UCD), Dr Jarosław Pietrzak (University of Poznań), Dr Eamonn Ó Ciardha (UU), Dr Aneta Markuszewska (University of Warsaw), Professor Edward Corp (Université Toulouse), Dr Linda Kiernan (TCD), Richard Maher (Rathmines College / TU Dublin).

Afterwards there will be a musical performance by Irish harpist Ms Jennifer Leahy.

Tea and coffee will be provided during a short break between panels and wine offered at the closing of proceedings.

This example of Franco-Irish-Polish cooperation is generously sponsored by The Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Dublin; the Embassy of France in Ireland; the Alliance Française Dublin; Rathmines College of Further Education; The Technological University of Dublin.
