with Lisa Godson

A series of fascinating lunchtime talks and workshops will run throughout St. Patrick’s Festival weekend. Expect lively discussions with some of Ireland’s most accomplished writers and academics and an illuminating workshop from one of Ireland’s leading singers.

Lisa Godson of the National College of Art and Design introduces the concept of material culture and explores how Ireland’s changing society is reflected in the everyday objects that inhabit our daily lives.

Lisa Godson is a historian of design and material culture, and also researches and writes about contemporary design. She studied History of Art at Trinity College Dublin (BA 1994) and History of Design at the Royal College of Art/Victoria & Albert Museum, London (MA 1998, PhD 2008).

Recent publications include the co-edited volumes Making 1916: material and visual culture of the Easter Rising (Liverpool University Press: 2015); Design learning in an age of austerity (Cumulus: 2015).
