Trinty's Colonial Legacies

TCL is a 2-year project, with two main aims. It seeks to contextualise and historicize the university's deep links to colonialism both in Ireland itself and in the wider world. It also seeks to raise awareness of college's physical and intellectual colonial legacies, monuments, and endowments in the present.

This website is an open workspace. We use it to allow people to track our  research process, and to think aloud about our work as it evolves. We consider these thoughts provisional.
