About the series
Trinity College Dublin has been a key witness, over many centuries, to Dublin’s development into the cosmopolitan city it is today. This multidisciplinary discussion series will look at the lived experience of Dublin’s citizens through the prism of Trinity’s Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences research. By drawing on historical, cultural, linguistic, sociological and economic perspectives, it will consider how we can understand a changing Dublin and influence plans for the city’s future.
