I will be presenting at a seminar on ‘Art, Culture and Conflict’ at the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin on Thursday 3 November at 6.30 pm.
My talk is titled ‘Surveying Religion’s Public Role: Perspectives on Diversity, Reconciliation and Ecumenism.’ It will draw on some of the research conducted for my School’s Visioning 21st Century Ecumenism research project.
The seminar is a joint venture of Dublintellectual and the Hugh Lane, and the purpose is to explore representations of conflict and post conflict in art and culture. The event is in conjunction with the Rita Donagh & Richard Hamilton Civil Rights etc. and Willie Doherty: DISTURBANCE exhibition running to Jan 15th 2011.
