Registration: 9:30 - 10:00 (conference begins at 10:00am)

This is an interdisciplinary PhD conference encouraging input from a range of subjects to discuss the contemporary political and economic status-quo. We want to trace the broad impact of political, economic and cultural change on the university and, more specifically, on the humanities. Panel participants will explore new methodologies in art and criticism, the disciplinary techniques of the neoliberal university, and issues of access for marginalised communities within the Irish state.

6:30 pm: Drinks & Finger Food by Our Table - a celebration of food traditions from a variety of countries

Our Table is a food initiative organised by people living in Ireland's Direct Provision system for asylum seekers. Their aim is to highlight the fact that people in direct provision are not allowed to cook for themselves and how that impacts on family and cultural identity. Our Table want to highlight how a wealth of food knowledge is being lost to the next generation.

Suggested Contribution €10.00 per person (cash only) All contributions will be given to Our Table.
