The Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool and Irish Cultural Centre Hammersmith Present:

An Ghaeilge: Cleachtais, Líonraí, Todhchaí- The Irish Language:Practices, Networks, Futures Seminar

This Friday seminar brings together speakers from the three Irish language centers in Britain (at the University of Liverpool in London, the University of Sheffield and University of Cambridge) supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and other specialists from Ireland and Britain.

Its purpose is to explore practice of teaching the Irish language, literature and other cultural forms today in the UK, Ireland and other European contexts. What are the networks that exist to support Irish language learners, teachers and cultural groups? To what extent does Irish or the literature in other Celtic languages feature in curricula at UK universities? What new practices and technologies in language teaching are being used today or might be in the future?

The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception, hosted by the Irish Embassy in London. Our guest speaker will be, Joe McHugh TD (Príomh-Aoire an Rialtais agus an tAire Cultúir, Oidhreachta agus Gaeltachta / Government Chief Whip and Minister of State at the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht). Musicians from Comhaltas will play traditional music during the reception.
