Jonathan Evershed is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the Ports, Past and Present project at University College Cork. He is an anthropologist with a research interest in postcolonial politics, culture, heritage and identity in the UK and Ireland. His book, Ghosts of the Somme: Commemoration and Culture War in Northern Ireland (University of Notre Dame Press, 2018) examines the contested politics of commemoration in Northern Ireland during the Decade of Centenaries (2012-2022/23).
Before joining Ports, Past and Present, Jonathan was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Government and Politics at UCC, where his work as part of the ESRC-funded project, ‘Between Two Unions: The constitutional future of the islands after Brexit’ focused on the implications of Brexit for the island of Ireland and for British-Irish relations.
