This is Trinity Week in Trinity College Dublin. The cricket pitch is beginning to look green; the cherry blossom is beginning to come into bloom; and Front Square is beginning to fill up with tourists. Trinity Week commenced yesterday on Trinity Monday, when we celebrated the announcement of the new Honorary Fellows, Fellows, and Scholars of the College. This is followed by a week of events including symposia, lectures, roundtable discussions and many other events, all of which will be of interest to the general public as well as to members of College and academics from other institutions. This year, the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences is hosting the programme of events for Trinity Week. The theme for the week is “Memory”, and the week long programme will include exciting events which demonstrate the key role memory plays in the teaching and research in the Faculty. There is more information here, the brochure may be downloaded here, and the events are live-tweeted here.
On Thursday next, 14 April, from 9:00am until 1:30pm, the School of Law (as one of the Schools in the Faculty) is co-hosting a half-day seminar on
Memory in a Digital Age: Collecting, Accessing and Forgetting.
