Monday December 6th marks both the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the Irish Free State and the 60th anniversary of the death of the anti-colonial and anti-racist activist and theorist, Frantz Fanon. This online workshop explores the relevance of Fanonian theory to understanding Ireland, past and present, bringing together experts from across disciplines and international boundaries to analyse questions of the construction of race, post- and anti-colonial culture, and history-writing on this island and beyond.
