The conference theme - ‘Ireland & British Democracy' - points to the movement of people and ideas in the battle for political rights, and the conference will explore the (positive and negative) ways in which Irish nationalism and Chartism coalesced in the mid-nineteenth century. There will be a public talk by Professor David Lloyd (University of California, Riverside) in the Mechanics Institute (Middle Street) on Friday, July 4th at 7.30pm to launch the conference.
