At home in Ireland, there’s a habit of avoidance, an ironical attitude towards the authority figure.
– Seamus Heaney

The Peter Froggatt Centre at Queen’s University Belfast is proud to host the 14th annual New Voices Conference, ‘Legitimate Ireland’, from the 19th – 21st April 2012. Directions to venue available here 

From both historical and contemporary perspectives, the concept of legitimacy calls for increasingly interdisciplinary responses. This postgraduate and early career researchers conference aims to interrogate the concept of legitimacy surrounding Ireland and Irishness, the representation of which has always implied experiences on the margins of society and the law.

We hope that this website provides you with all the information you will need, but do not hesitate to contact us. The site will be updated regularly as the conference draws nearer. Please direct any questions to: newvoices2012@qub.ac.uk

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Belfast.

Warmest wishes,

Adam Bargroff, Catherine McGurren, Matthew Reznicek and Megan Minogue
