Ireland and Europe in the Eighteenth Century
A series of talks to complement this year’s festival theme, Journeys and Migrations.
This year’s Belfast Festival theme Journeys and Migrations refers not just to people, but to the movement and transmission of ideas and texts.
Colleagues from Queen’s Faculty of Humanities have come together to create the interdisciplinary Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies within the university, and to coincide with the festival, a series of talks entitled ‘Ireland and Europe in the Eighteenth Century’ will take place in the McMordie Hall on Wednesday, Nov 27. Topics covered include the Belfast News Letter, the works of Thomas Moore on the continent, and the Irish in Europe.
