Davis Now Lectures: Making Home
Thursday, 9 January, 2020
The RTÉ Radio 1 DAVIS NOW LECTURES present aspects of MAKING HOME by contributors renowned in their fields of Architecture, History, Technology, Arts and Economics.
Explaining the "Making Home" theme, Dr Rowley said:
"The intention is to take a major national issue - in this case Housing - and present and discuss socio-economic and cultural aspects that stretch the public understanding and the definition of 'home' nationally and universally."
Five lectures (see below) are recorded on location around Ireland in July for future broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1 as five hour-long edited programmes. Each of the lectures is followed by contributions from invited guests, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
