DATE: 26 June 2015
VENUE: Physics Theatre, Newman House, 85 St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2
Soon after the Bloomsday and Yeats birthday celebrations, on Friday 26 June 2015, the School of English, Film and Drama at University College Dublin will host a seminar at Newman House, chaired by Colm Tóibín, on the subject of the continuing global influence of Yeats. This event will form UCD’s major contribution to the ‘Yeats 2015′ commemorative programme’ (marking the 150th anniversary of the poet’s birth), now a recognised element of the Government’s commemorative calendar. The national programme, chaired by Senator Susan O’Keeffe, will feature a series of national and international events over the year 2015. The UCD Global Yeats seminar will feature 4 internationally renowned writers, invited to speak on the continuing significance of Yeats, to an audience of writers and readers and will be available by podcast subsequent to the event.
