Lecture: "Post-colonial Identity and the Idea of Nationhood: Argentina, Brazil, and Ireland"


Location: Hesburgh Center, C-103 (View on map )

Sergio Kiernan is a journalist, the Sunday Editor at the national daily Página/12, and the Architectural, Preservation and Urban Affairs Editor of the weekly supplement M2. He will contrast the Irish idea of nationhood with that of Argentina and Brazil as cases of post-colonial identity – a subject that is particularly timely following a year in which Ireland has commemorated the 1916 Rebellion.
