Book Launch - Notes & Narratives

The evening was given over to the launch of France and Ireland: Notes and Narratives - Tuesday the 27th of October 2015

NCFIS book launch at ITT Dublin Oct 2015Tuesday the 27th of October was a very pleasant Franco-Irish celebration in IT Tallaght. It began in the afternoon with stimulating talks by Joe Carroll and Grace Neville dealing with a journalist’s experience of Paris before, during and after the ‘événements’ of 1968, followed by a discussion of French commentators’ portrayal of ‘l’île verte’ over the centuries. The animated discussion after the talks revealed the extent to which the speakers had stimulated the audience and raised a number of interesting and important issues.

The evening was given over to the launch of France and Ireland: Notes and Narratives. The Guest of Honour, Professor Harry White of UCD, gave a wonderfully erudite and laudatory discussion of all 16 essays and expressed his genuine admiration for their quality and scope.

He was particularly struck by the interdisciplinarity displayed in the collection (a quality that AFIS always tries to cultivate) and he commended the editors, Una Hunt and Mary Pierse, for the way in which they structured the book in a way which allows the various sections to build the theme incrementally and seamlessly. Professor White also expressed his admiration for the Reimagining Ireland series in which the book appears, which he described as a unique and monumental achievement.
