  • Plantation to Partition Opening Event

    Plantation to Partition is an exciting PEACE III programme which will examine how key historical events have shaped our cultural identities and our shared heritage. This is a collaborative partnership programme with Derry City Council, Strabane District Council, Omagh District Council and Donegal County Council. The programme explores this 400 year period and its legacy in a cross community/cross border capacity. It aims to promote shared use of spaces and resources as a means of developing an understanding of our shared heritage, promote dialogue on our cultural identity and lead to a deeper awareness of our cultural identities and ensure a lasting legacy beyond 2013.

    A facilitated programme of workshops will take place across the Derry City Council, Strabane District Council, Omagh District Council and Donegal County Council areas. It will explore the historical context and legacy of the following key events: • Plantation (400th anniversary in 2013); • Emigration (legacy and impacts today); • Partition (legacy and anniversaries of Ulster Covenant 1912, • Easter Rising 1916, Civil War 1919-20; and Treaty/ Partition 1921). • Battle of the Somme 1916 • Irish Cultural Revival

    There will be an innovative and interactive cross-community archaeological dig opening up heritage in a unique and interactive way, bringing people together to share history and its legacy on the present day. There will also be a specific event to mark The Ulster Covenant centenary in September 2012 - relevant to the school curriculum links on Partition.

    Conference 9th March 2012 Room 82D23 Belfast Campus University of Ulster 10.00 am- 6.00 p.m.

    The last twenty years have witnessed a resurgence of interest in Ulster-Scots poetry, and amid much political controversy and debate, a dynamic and varied body of writing both recent and traditional has emerged. This conference will examine how this new and expanding body of work might be explored and understood by academics and the public in Northern Ireland and further afield, and what implications this evolving canon might have for literary critics, linguists, historians and cultural commentators. The conference will provide a platform for established and emergent critics to assess how Ulster-Scots poetry might be interpreted, developed and utilised in the twenty-first century.

    The Plenary Speaker will be Professor Gerry Carruthers (Glasgow) who will talk on the following subject: ‘Scots and Ulster-Scots Poetry: Varieties of Possibility’?

    Topics will include: Ulster-Scots poetry as community voice; Ulster-Scots poetry and literary theory; Ulster-Scots Poetry and diaspora; Ulster Scots poetry and digital humanities; Ulster-Scots poetry: Commemorating the Future.

    Speakers will include: Richard Holmes (Bristol), David Gray (Ulster) Frank Ferguson (Ulster) Andrew Holmes (QUB) Laura Spence (BBC) David Hume (MAGUS) Carol Baraniuk (Ulster) Kathryn White (Ulster), Jennifer Orr (Glasgow), Ivan Herbison (MAGUS)

    The Ulster-Scots Poetry Project will launch its poetry website.

    There will be a special launch of Dr. Jennifer Orr’s The Correspondence of Samuel Thomson 1766-1816 (Four Courts).
