UCD Summer School: Cultural Heritage and Social Change

Cultural Heritage and Social Change in Ireland: Global answers to local questions
University College Dublin, John Human Institute for Global Irish Studies Summer School

We think of heritage as rooted in the past, but our relationships to it and our management of heritage resources are contemporary choices and actions. Beyond the present, they are central to how societies plan their futures. This summer school will explore the histories and contexts of recent cultural and social changes in Ireland and how they have informed and shaped the development of cultural policy and the heritage industry. The course will feature seminars and talks by leading cultural critics, policy makers, museum curators, artists and academics. It will also incorporate site visits and case studies in and around the Dublin area, including two field trips outside of Dublin.
