Saturday 8th July,9:30-6:30, Room 255 in the O’Rahilly Building, UCC

This one-day multi-disciplinary conference is funded by the Irish Research Council, and organised by Dr Maureen O'Connor (English) and Dr Ben Gearey (Archaeology). It will feature a presentation by documentarian Manchán Magan, and will bring together people with an interest in peat/peatlands, including those working on the conservation, ecology and management of these landscapes, scientists researching peatland processes, archaeologists and palaeoecologists working on the remarkable records preserved in peat, through to artists and writers who draw inspiration from peat/peatlands…and more besides.

Who? Everyone and anyone is very welcome to attend – students, academics, writers, artists, and the general public.

How much? Attendance is free. We ask that you register at Eventbrite, however, so we can plan the day.
