SIL Programme Final


1. EWI - July 10, 2017

See, ‘West Cork History Festival’: this is how to do it with style and academic integrity.


2. Starkadder - July 10, 2017

“Loyalism” suggests a focus on working class & Evangelical Protestant elements in Southern Ireland (rather than the usual
Kildare Street Club types)-which could be a interesting area of analysis for the conference.


EWI - July 11, 2017

It’s a really interesting-looking conference (I might go myself).

The only protestant industrial workers in Southern Ireland in the early twentieth century were in Dublin – Sean O’Casey writes a dramatic role for Bessie Burgess as the wife of one in his play The Plough and the Stars. This should be an interesting academic event if the participants try objectively to understand the socio-political and spiritual mindset of southern Protestants as they tried to cope with the idea of being cut off by ‘events’ from the state they and their ancestors had known as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. BTW: they weren’t all members of the C of I. Some belonged to nonconformist denominations like Baptists, Methodists and Presbyterians.

Looks really interesting, but I’m not in Dublin until late that Saturday night. If anyone is going, a report would be much appreciated.
