Ireland’s Generation X? – Ian Lynch (Lankum)

Join Professor Barry McCrea with musician Ian Lynch in this edition of Ireland’s Generation X?, a series of conversations about Ireland’s in-between generation.

“Generation X” describes the group of people born between 1965 and 1985, a generation caught between Baby Boomers and Millennials characterised by anti-establishment slacker culture, cynicism, irony, and— after the global economic crash — negative equity. An American term describing American lives, the moniker perhaps fails to accurately represent the experience of those who came of age during the 1980s and 1990s in Ireland. This series invites artists and writers who grew up in an Ireland shaped by the Troubles, social justice movements, EU membership, the Peace Process, and the Celtic Tiger, to share their work and reflect on the social and cultural influences at home and abroad.

Presented by MoLI in partnership with the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame.
