Summer School on Protestantism, Unionism and Loyalism

The Irish School of Ecumenics’ Summer School on Protestantism, Unionism and Loyalism continues July 9-12.

Guided by historian and dramatist Philip Orr, and organised by Gladys Ganiel (coordinator of the MPhil in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation), the School has so far featured visits and seminars with guest speakers, including DUP politician and Ulster Scots enthusiast Nelson McCausland, the Ulster Scots’ Agency’s Mark Anderson (who provides an excellent demonstration about the lambeg drum and fife), the Ulster Museum’s Jason Burke, and a visit to Ballymacarrett Orange Lodge.
