REMEMBERING OUR REFERENDA: the role of ephemera in libraries and archives/the 1983 Referendum campaign with Enda Leaney and Mary Muldowney

25 September, 2018 @ 1:10 pm

Ephemera refers to items that are not meant to last i.e. “throwaway” stuff like leaflets, stickers, badges and posters. Dublin City Library and Archive has been collecting all types of political ephemera for many years but why do this? Enda Leaney, Dublin City Library and Archive, will talk about these special collections while Mary Muldowney, Historian in Residence, Dublin City Council, will look at the divisive 1983 referendum campaign (Eight amendment of the Constitution).

No booking required. All welcome on a first come, first served basis.
