Description

The American Friends of Attingham are delighted that Terence Dooley, Professor at Maynooth University in Ireland, will be the speaker for the 2018 Annual Fall Benefit Lecture, AFA’s only annual fundraising event, on Thursday, September 13, 2018.

“Professor Terence Dooley has almost single-handedly revolutionized the study of the country house in Ireland. His brilliant social and political analysis in The Decline of The Big House in Ireland (2001), his establishment and directorship of the Centre for the Study of Historic Irish Houses and Estates at Maynooth University, and his report for the Irish government, A future for Irish historic houses? A Study of Fifty Houses (2003), have provided enormous stimulus and encouraged wide-ranging research into subject areas that for many years had been swept under the carpet. He is an electrifying speaker.”

David Adshead FSA, Director, The Attingham Summer School

“Prof. Terence Dooley is a brilliant speaker. An international leader in the multi-disciplinary study of the country house, he brings passion and extraordinary story-telling abilities to the podium.”

Sean Sawyer ’02, Director, The Olana Partnership, Board Member of the American Friends of Attingham

The evening will include a festive reception with Terence and friends.

Individual tickets are $100 per person ($150 per person if purchased day-of the lecture). The tax-deductible (to the extent of the law) portion of each ticket is $50.

For information on lecture sponsorships starting at $1,250, which include an invitation to a dinner with the speaker, please contact admin@americanfriendsofattingham.org or call (212-682-6840).
