Gone and forgotten: reflections on the Roman empire in Ireland
October 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Royal Irish Academy Library is delighted to present a lunchtime lecture by Dr Damian Bracken, University College Cork, exploring the representations of imperial Rome by writers in early Ireland, a land that was never part of the empire and that gave the lie to imperial Rome’s claims to universal domination.
This talk complements the free exhibition ‘Ireland and the birth of Europe’ in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and University College Cork which runs from 11 September to 20 October 2023 at the Royal Irish Academy daily 10am-5pm.
Note: Places are limited, so advance booking is recommended.
