"The Slow Death of Liberal Governmentality": If liberalism is the quintessential form of modern governmentality, its quintessential form was arguably achieved in Britain (if not Ireland) in the 19th century - in the 'organised freedom' of the Victorian inspection state, information state, or information society. But what are the prospects for this liberal governmentality in neoliberal or post liberal times? What lessons can be learned from what we might now see as the golden age of liberal governmentality? Should we lament its passing?

The Irish Centre for Human Rights is pleased to welcome Roldan Jimeno, Senior Lecturer of History of Law at the Public University of Navarre, Spain. Roldan is currently guest researcher at the Irish Centre for Human Rights.
His talk will concern the conflicts in Northern Ireland and the Basque Country that concluded with very different amnesties. The Spanish transition from dictatorship to democracy included an amnesty in 1977. This amnesty was applied to crimes of terrorism against the Franco regime and also to crimes perpetrated during the dictatorship and the transition by both, the State and terrorists of the extreme right.  In Northern Ireland, the Good Friday Agreement of 1998 took into account recent developments in international law. International law did not allow total amnesties. To this end,  ’amnesties under license’ were introduced by the British Government for both, Irish Republican Army (IRA) and loyalist paramilitary members and prisoners in Northern Ireland. The ‘amnesty under license’ was very different to the total or general amnesties in previous decades of some Latin American countries, Spain and the French amnesties for crimes in Algeria.
 
Against this background, Roldan will also highlight the events in Spain and in France, where terrorism was carried out by the Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (ETA) from 1977 onward. In Northern Ireland, new groups caused an intensification of terrorist attacks from 1999 onward that resulted in deadly attacks in all three countries. His talk will examine the status of current prisoners of terrorist organizations in these countries in relation to amnesty laws. The United Nations and other international human rights organizations have taken a position against total amnesty, as total amnesties usher in a culture of impunity. In this context, Roldan will elaborate as how the ‘war on terror’ has severely affected human rights protection in the United Kingdom, France and Spain, while impacting amnesty laws.

There will be tea/coffee and biscuits on offer after the Meeting for Worship - you are welcome to attend either or both, if you are interested in finding out more about Irish Quakers. A Quaker Style Meeting for Worship is based on a group of people sitting in silent waiting on God. Anyone at the meeting is free to contribute in word or song if they feel moved to do so in the Spirit of the meeting. There are no special prayers and no structure to meeting. The meeting usually ends with a hand- shake. All who wish to sit in silence and peace in the presence of God are welcome - you don’t have to be a Quaker, you don't have to profess to any belief at all – walk in, sit down – and then we try to be still.

The third in the series of public interviews curated by the Centre for Irish Studies as part of its programme of commemoration of the 1916 Rising will feature Fr Peter McVerry in conversation with Vincent Woods.
 
A Jesuit priest from Newry, Co. Down, McVerry has dedicated his working life to helping the homeless and poor in Dublin. When he began the Peter McVerry Trust in 1983 the service consisted of a three bedroom flat in Ballymun. Today the Peter McVerry Trust manages eleven hostels, over 100 apartments, a residential drug detox centre and two drug stabilisation services. These services have been under increasing pressure in recent years and McVerry claims that homelessness is now “beyond crisis” in Ireland.

The final interview in the series of public interviews curated by the Centre for Irish Studies as part of its programme of commemoration of the 1916 Rising will feature Robert Ballagh in conversation with Vincent Woods.
 
Robert Ballagh is one of Ireland’s leading contemporary artists. From an early interest in rock music, Ballagh began experimenting with graphic and pop art, and has created some of Ireland’s most iconic artworks, including portraits of Noel Browne and John B Keane. His artistic response to the Troubles in the North of Ireland was part of an insistence that art and artists should engage with history and politics while designs for postage stamps and banknotes, and the set he created for Riverdance, indicate the range and flexibility of an art practice that is both popular and democratic. He is a founding member of the Reclaim the Vision of 1916 citizens’ initiative which was established to draw attention to the contemporary relevance of the Irish revolution.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the passing of John McGahern, The James Hardiman Library in association with the MA in Writing and the Moore Institute at NUI Galway are delighted to present a public lecture by the renowned John McGahern scholar, Denis Sampson. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, 27 April at 7pm in the Hardiman Research Building, NUI Galway. Sampson produced the first full-length study of McGahern’s works, Outstaring Nature’s Eye, in 1993, and his enduring critical attention to the writer culminated in his book "Young John McGahern: Becoming a Novelist", published by Oxford University Press in 2012. Sampson has lectured and published widely on modern Irish writing, and he has also published a memoir, "A Migrant Heart" (2014). His new book from Oxford, "The Found Voice: Writers' Beginnings", will be out next month. The 30th of March this year was the 10th anniversary of the death of the celebrated Irish writer, John McGahern. McGahern’s work, from the 1960s up to his passing in 2006, has enthralled readers with his artistry and has engaged a succession of generations with his range of themes emanating from modern Irish history, culture and society. His reputation is as strong abroad as at home, and he is widely regarded as a master of the novel and short-story forms. The rich John McGahern Archive at the Hardiman Library, NUI Galway preserves the documentary evidence of 'the writer at work'. In his lecture, Denis Sampson mines the Archive to trace the drafting and evolution of McGahern's 1990 novel, Amongst Women, and he reveals the ‘reinvention’ of McGahern as a writer through his writing of this major novel. In McGahern's papers, the characteristic personal traces of the writer can be found in voluminous manuscript copybooks and loose pages. The ideas that inform each work become clearer through these papers, and his artistic process is made clear in the exhaustive level of revision and redrafting he brought to his emergent novels and stories. Looking forward to Sampson’s lecture, Dr John Kenny, John McGahern Lecturer in Creative Writing and Director of the MA in Writing, NUI Galway observed: ‘The nature of John McGahern’s Archive here at NUI Galway ideally suits it to different kinds of exploratory readers. Scholars of McGahern, or of contemporary Irish fiction and writing, naturally find it a highly valuable resource, but the papers also hold great promise for any student or devotee of writing intent on emulating the best models for creative practice and artistic dedication’. John Cox, University Librarian, NUI Galway comments: "We treasure the John McGahern archive as an enabler of new research and are greatly looking forward to Denis Sampson's lecture as a very appropriate way of marking the tenth anniversary of John's passing." In his lecture, Sampson will discuss unpublished drafts of Amongst Women from within the McGahern Archive and will reveal the links between the novel and some of the earlier McGahern short stories in his collections Getting Through and High Ground. The lecture will be accompanied by an opportunity to view select material from the McGahern Archive and is free of charge and open to all.
