Dr Lachlan McKinnon is an Oral Historian and SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the Gorsebrook Research Institute for Atlantic Canada Studies, Saint Mary's University in Halifax, Canada. He completed his Ph.D. at the Center for Oral History and Digital Storytelling at Concordia University in Montreal in History in 2016 with a thesis titled: Deindustrialization on the Periphery: An Oral History of Sydney Steel, 1945-2016. The thesis examined oral histories of workers displaced by the closure of industrial or manufacturing workplaces and is currently being prepared for publication by Toronto University Press. He has published a number of journal articles and book chapters, and is also co-editor with Steven High and Andrew Perchard, The Deindustrialized World: Confronting Ruination in Post-Industrial Places (Vancouver: University of British Columbia Press 2017). His current research is a comparative study of workers' experiences of displacement and state policy in Canada, Ireland, and the Scottish Highlands. In addition to the many awards he has received in the past, he has been recently awarded a prestigious Dobbin Atlantic Scholarship to enable him to carry out this research in Ireland as Visiting Fellow in the Department of History at UL, where he had spent part of 2008/2009 as a Study Abroad Student.

Professor Armando Cisneros Sosa, is professor in the Department of Sociology, Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Mexico City, where he is also the Coordinator of the Sociology of Culture Group and a member of the Sociological Theory cluster.

He is a distinguished sociologist who has also studied and published on Mexico’s urban history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. His key interests, however, are in social movements-state relationships, civil disobedience, democratic transition, and political legitimacy during Mexico’s period of transition in the late twentieth century. His work integrates empirical research with the sociological theory of John Rawls. He has published widely in these areas, principally, El sentido del espacio/The Sense of Space (2006), Introduccion Al Mundo De Octavio Paz (2008), and Guerra de Hidalgo (2011). His current project continues this line of scholarly enquiry into the “Movimientos Sociales en América Latina”.

Professor Cisneros Sosa will deliver two lectures during his visit.

Dr David Fleming led his eighteenth-century politics class' annual visit to the House of Lords in College Green, Dublin, on 22 March. The fieldtrip has become a regular feature of his HI4107 module. The House of Lords' chamber remains one of the most unique spaces in the country, practically unchanged since it was built in the 1720s, and provides an evocative setting for a class devoted to the study of eighteenth-century Irish politics.
