Sara Dybris McQuaid - Foredragsholder

Oplægsholder ved arrangement i Consilium

Foreningen Consilium er en interdisciplinær studenterforening, der beskæftiger sig med internationale konflikter og løsningen af disse.

Det er Consiliums ønske først og fremmest at skabe dybdegående debatter og diskussioner, hvor studerende kan få lov til at stille afklarende og nysgerrige spørgsmål til foredragsholderne. Her får de studerende på tæt hånd glæde af foredragsholdernes erfaring og viden indenfor konfliktløsnings feltet og får mulighed for selv at komme på banen. Samtidig bestræber Consilium sig på at afholde større debatmøder og forelæsninger i samarbejde med dets samarbejdspartnere; CRIC og RIKO for at tiltrække sig et bredere publikum.

We are happy to invite you all to an enlightening talk on the peace process in Northern Ireland. The talks will focus on practice: How do people experience and navigate in the post-conflict terrain? What role does storytelling play in the peace process? And how do people 'tell friend from foe' in conflicted areas in Belfast? Sara Dybris McQuaid (CRIC) is an expert in Irish Studies and her talk will take its point of departure in a recent article on storytelling as the prevalent mode of addressing the legacy of violent conflict in Northern Ireland. McQuaid considers storytelling as a conduit for remembering, which is at once shaped by the absence of policies and legal frameworks, but also shapes subsequent policies to deal with the violent past. Henrik Vigh (Institute of Anthropology) has done extensive fieldwork among the Loyalist Protestants in Belfast. Vigh will focus on the practice of 'Telling' as a way of reading social environments and people in Belfast. The post-conflict state of hyper-vigilance has created a hyper-signified environment in which there are perceived markers of difference in almost anything, from clothing styles, to haircuts, to sports, schools, and music. Paying attention to such signifiers is a way of 'telling' benign from dangerous, friend from foe, which enables people to look out for potential conflict.
