The Irish Humanities Alliance (IHA), in collaboration with Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) and The LAB, is delighted to present Streets Ahead: Post-Pandemic Civic Spaces. Today, as we plan for post-pandemic landscapes, with greater awareness and appreciation of the outdoors, the open-air spaces of our common world have renewed significance. Public places now need to function more effectively as truly shared spaces. Presenting current research from the fields of design, visual and material culture, public history, cultural history, architecture, urban planning, sonic studies, public art and heritage studies, this conference attempts to provide a critical lens through which to focus this newly enhanced attention. The conference will take place in hybrid form on 9-10 September 2022 in Dublin, at TU Dublin, Grangegorman, and The LAB, Foley Street (complying with government guidelines in September 2022).
Keynote Speakers Include: Ali Grehan, Dublin City Council: Duane Jethro, University of Cape Town; Eleanor Herring, Glasgow School of Art; Christoph Lindner, University College London; Ellen Rowley, University College Dublin and Katria Tomko, Institute for Historical Justice
