Thursday, 19 November 2020, 7 – 8pm
A panel discussion as part of the 'Trinity and the Changing City' Series in association with Trinity Long Room Hub.
A follow-up to our social class panel in last year’s series: this panel will ask a focused question: how do we fix inequality in education in our city? Most fee-paying schools cluster in the Dublin commuter belt, and some of the most disadvantaged schools in the country can be found here too. Dublin is a microcosm for a wider problem in Ireland, and in education systems elsewhere. Speakers include: Joe Humphreys (Journalist, The Irish Times), Dr Delma Byrne (Maynooth University) and Professor Jan Skopek (Department of Sociology, Trinity), the evening will be chaired by Dr Ciaran O'Neill, Deputy Director of the Trinity Long Room Hub.
Trinity and the Changing City is organised by the Identities in Transformation research theme, led by Daniel Faas, Department of Sociology, and is supported by the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute.
