Unlike most other archaeologists, Dr. Laura McAtackney who is an Associate Professor of Archeology at Aarhus University does not dig in the past – but in the present. What becomes heritage? What can we remember and what do we tend to forget? Laura McAtckney’s research has brought her to Irish prisons and institutions such as a Magdalene Laundry in Ireland and the Long Kesh Maze prison in Northern Ireland.
Episode 4 in the podcast series that I produce for Centre for Irish Studies at Århus University introduces the research of CISA affiliate Laura McAtackney.
