End Date: 10/27/2012End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description
Faculty Talk by Lee Smithey, associate professor, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, and Coordinator, Peace and Conflict Studies Program
 
Many organizations and communities in Northern Ireland have used public ritual and symbols, such as parades, bonfires, murals, and commemorations to build and sustain collective identities during the region's longstanding conflict. However, Northern Ireland is now in an important phase of conflict transformation. What role, if any, can symbolic rituals play in dealing with the past and improving community relations? Emphasis will be placed on Protestant unionists, and loyalists.
