"Murals of Northern Ireland" Brown Bag Dialogue

The Murals of Northern Ireland collection at the Claremont Colleges Digital Library (CCDL) forms an archive of images of murals in Northern Ireland painted from 1979 continuing through the present day. The images record the representation of history, the expression of political standpoints, the articulation of community concerns, the formations of memory, and modes of ideological address. The murals range from overtly political declarations, to graphic depictions of conflict, to comments on the peace process, to humor and irony. The Murals collection and project began as a collaboration with Dr. Tony Crowley during his time at Scripps College.

Dr. Crowley worked as a journalist in Northern Ireland earlier in his career and has written widely on both the murals and the politics of language in Ireland. Dr. Crowley will visit Claremont for a week of events examining the Murals and the topic of public art, co-sponsored by Pitzer College.
