Lecture series

We deliver a lecture series every year with the assistance of the Irish academics in the region, who come from Teesside, Durham, Sunderland Northumbria and Newcastle Universities and lecture to our audience on Irish politics, history, poetry and literature.

Each year we adopt a theme, for example, in 2016 we focussed on the centenary of the Easter Rising. 2018 was the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s honorary doctorate awarded by Newcastle University. The theme was ‘Freedom City’ recognising his contribution to Civil Rights where we worked in partnership with Newcastle University and the City Council.

Our FREE Zoom Webinar Lecture series for 2020-2021 was launched in early November 2020. The first two events featured the works of Ciaran Carson and Seamus Heaney.

Our next lecture will be given by Joseph O’Connor author of Star of the Sea. To join us for these live events simply email to let us know you are interested at tyneirishcs@gmail.com and we will send you the link in time for the broadcast.

As an audience member you will not be seen or heard but will be able to join in a Q&A session at the end of the discussion.
