Blasphemy: Historical anachronism or modern crime?

TCD Long Room Hub logoThe Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin, presents a public lecture entitled

Blasphemy: Historical anachronism or modern crime?

by Professor David Nash, Department of History, Oxford Brookes University, UK.

The lecture will take place from 4:00pm to 5:30pm on Tuesday, 20 April 2010 next, in the Swift Lecture Theatre (Room 2041A), Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin (map here).

David Nash is the author of Blasphemy in Modern Britain 1789-present (Ashgate Publishing, 1999 | Amazon) and Blasphemy in the Christian World (Oxford University Press, 2007 | Amazon) and I am told that all are welcome to attend (though it is probably best to contact the Hub to be sure). I’m really looking forward to this; it is just one of many forthcoming events organised by the Hub, especially their fascinating Trinity Week events (next week, from 12 to 17 April) under the banner of Ideas For the Future.

Welcome

Me in a hatHi there! Thanks for dropping by. I'm Eoin O'Dell, and this is my blog: Cearta.ie - the Irish for rights.

"Cearta" really is the Irish word for rights, so the title provides a good sense of the scope of this blog.

In general, I write here about private law, free speech, and cyber law; and, in particular, I write about Irish law and education policy.

Blogroll (or, really, a non-blogroll)

What I'd like for here is a simple widget that takes the list of feeds from my existing RSS reader and displays it here as a blogroll. Nothing fancy. I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

I had built a blogroll here on my Google Reader RSS subscriptions. Google Reader produced a line of html for each RSS subscription category, each of which I pasted here. So I had a list of my subscriptions as my blogroll, organised by category, which updated whenever I edited Google Reader. Easy peasy. However, with the sad and unnecessary demise of that product, so also went this blogroll. Please take a moment to mourn Google Reader. If there's an RSS reader which provides a line of html for the list of subscriptions, or for each RSS subscription category as Google Reader did, I'd happily use that. So, as I've already begged, I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

Meanwhile, please bear with me until I find a new RSS+Blogroll solution

Thanks,

Eoin.
