Who's who at the conference 26th October

Professor Fitzpatrick is followed by Dr Dominic Bryan, Institute of Irish Studies, Queens University Belfast whose paper is entitled 'Public Space and Power – Ritual and Identity in a ‘Shared’ Belfast'. 

Contemporary violent conflict in Northern Ireland appeared to start with Civil Rights parades and end with disputes over Orange parades. This paper will identify why rituals are important in politics in Northern Ireland. By examining changes to ritual practice in Belfast this paper will argue that participation in a shared city is important for political transformation in Northern Ireland. You can view Dr Bryan's full abstract on the confirmed speakers page.
