HISTORY IN THE MAKING: the Ulster Museum and the Troubles and Beyond.

Centre for Public History, Queen's University Belfast

This is a free event
The Centre for Public History, Queen's University Belfast, invites you to join us for HISTORY IN THE MAKING: A MASTERCLASS IN DIALOGUE. Join BBCNI's Marie-Louise Muir in conversation with the Ulster Museum's William Blair and Karen Logan in an informal exploration of the challenges of curating the Northern Ireland Troubles. Refreshments served on arrival.

On Good Friday 2018, the Ulster Museum opened its doors, and its collections, to a new commemorative exhibition 'The Troubles and Beyond'. Displayed across hundreds of objects and images, the gallery documents social, political, and cultural changes in Northern Ireland from the civil rights era to today's post-conflict society.

But what influenced the curators' interpretations of the Troubles? And what historical and curatorial challenges did they encounter as they brought the realities of that past from collection to final exhibition?

Join BBC NI's Marie-Louise Muir as she asks these and other revealing questions in an exclusive interview with the creators of the Ulster Museum's 'The Troubles and Beyond' exhibition, William Blair and Karen Logan
