Welcome to the Field Day Podcast

Seeing as we are facing into yet another economic crash, it’s a good time to think about how societies organise themselves in times of crisis. As historian Patrick Doyle explains in our current episode, there is often a turn towards cooperative forms of economic activity at times like this.

Patrick Doyle’s book on the Cooperative Movement is published by Manchester University Press.

This episode is presented in association with the Dublin Review of Books. We heartily recommend the drb to supporters of Field Day. In the words of Seamus Deane: “The drb sustains a level of commentary on Irish and international matters that no other journal in Ireland and few elsewhere can reach.”
