About the History Ireland Hedge School Series
Like their eighteenth-century predecessors, the hedge schools run by History Ireland are slightly subversive in nature – a unique combination of serious and playful round table discussions conducted by expert contributors, coupled with active participation by, and engagement with, a general audience. The idea behind the twenty-first-century version is that it too can be run ‘anywhere, any time and on any topic’. While not like an academic seminar in terms of its presentation style, it is like an academic seminar in terms of the discussion that takes place. All events are deliberately designed to be provocative, interactive and primarily driven by content.
Many of our events at the NLI are free. If you would like this to continue, you can support our Events Programme by making a donation. Donation boxes are located throughout the NLI buildings.
