ABOUT US

Discuss fresh perspectives on ‘the economy’ in a ruminative academy Formerly hosted in Blackwater Castle

President Michael D. Higgins opening the 2015 Summer School with staff and students.

After-ThoughtsThis is a time for reflection and rumination. Each session will present key ideas and paradigms, with speakers asked for their ‘after-thoughts’ on key works and contemplate what’s coming in the approaching ‘after-math’: in markets, work, organisations, welfare, politics, critique, media, migration and much more.
