From Joyce's Ulysses to Fáilte Ireland's latest rebranding of Dublin as 'surprising by nature', the city has repeatedly been a subject of mediation. Yet many aspects of its development persistently escape reflection in the city's arts and media. Considering the challenge of representing other Dublins and Dublin's others, the session will feature contributions from the poet, playwright and former Ireland Chair of Poetry Paula Meehan, the artist Dorothy Smith, a key visual documenter of the contemporary inner city, and the academic and film classifier Zélie Asava, author of The Black Irish Onscreen (2013).
