Waking the Hirschfeld: an Oral History and Archival Study of a Dublin LGBTQ Centre

Friday, October 22, 2021 - 11:00 to 12:00

Dr Páraic Kerrigan (UCD) and Professor Maria Pramaggiore (MU) present their current research project, which combines oral history and archival research in order to re-discover the rich history of an LGBTQ community resource which operated from 1979-1987.

We argue that oral history, archival research and a clearly articulated concept of intergenerational collaboration is essential to the ability of researchers to mark and historicise the discontinuities of queer Irish lives.
