Welcome to the Field Day Podcast

Our current episode is a live recording of a lecture given by Bernadette Devlin McAliskey in Derry in 2016.

‘A Terrible State o’ Chassis’ was the 2nd Annual Seamus Deane Lecture. It’s a stirring account of how Troubles and Peace Process politics are obscuring our view of the really significant change taking place in Ireland north and south – the takeover of the country by multinational corporations.

Bernadette Devlin (later Devlin McAliskey) as a 22-year old psychology student and People’s Democracy candidate, in Belfast.
