Public Lecture by the Director of National Trust Northern Ireland, Heather Thompson

I hosted a 2-day event for academic and non-academic audiences at Queen's University and the Ulster Museum. Entitled 'New directions in Public History' this explored the challenges and opportunities represented by Northern Ireland's built heritage and looked at a number of models where academic and non-academic partners have collaborated to realise the potential of built heritage for economic growth and societal well-being
