INCORE Announcement - 10 January 2017
Invitation to book Launch
Edited by Graham Dawson, Jo Dover and Stephen Hopkins
19 January 2017, 6.00-8.00 p.m.
Room BA 02-005, Belfast campus, Ulster University,
25-51 York Street, Belfast, BT15 1ED
This ground-breaking books provides the first comprehensive investigation of the history and memory of the Northern Ireland Troubles in Britain. It examines the impacts of the conflict upon individual lives, political and social relationships, communities and culture in Britain, and explores how the people of Britain (including its Irish communities) have responded to, and engaged with the conflict, in the context of contested political narratives produced by the State and its opponents. Setting an agenda for further research and public debate, the book demonstrates that 'unfinished business' from the conflicted past persists unaddressed in Britain, and advocates the importance of acknowledging legacies, understanding histories and engaging with memories in the context of peace-building and reconciliation. Contributors include scholars from a wide range of disciplines (social, political and cultural history; politics; media, film and cultural studies; law; literature; performing arts; sociology; peace studies); activists, artists, writers and peace-builders; and people with direct personal experience of the conflict.
The book was published last month, and is being launched in London and Belfast in January, with a Dublin launch later in 2017. There is a special discount for those attending the launch, where the paperback version of the book will be available for £15, 50% off the usual price.
The event will be co-hosted by INCORE and Healing Through Remembering, and will be addressed by the three editors, Graham, Stephen and Jo. Some of the contributors will also be in attendance, and following the launch and speeches, there will be a wine reception.
