by Professor Marianne Elliot FBA

The world’s leading professors explain the latest thinking in the humanities and social sciences in just 10 minutes.
In this talk, Marianne Elliot reflects on the existence and history of a 'shared space' Belfast identity, focusing particularly on the 1940s and 1950s, but also on post-Good Friday Agreement efforts to restore 'shared' living spaces, so damaged by the Northern Ireland Troubles.
Speaker: Professor Marianne Elliot FBA, Professor Emerita, Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool
This talk is part of the Imagine! Belfast Festival of Ideas and Politics 2021.
