Rotary Global Grant Scholar - June 2017

Kristina McLaughlin and President Colin McCarthy


Carrickfergus Rotary Club President Colin McCarthy welcomed Kristina McLaughlin from Cedar Rapids in Iowa as guest speaker to the Club.

Kristina is an American postgraduate scholar currently studying at Trinity College on a Rotary scholarship.Specifically Katrina is researching how Ireland commemorates particular periods in its past, ultimately trying to understand how a people can honour the past without de-stabilising the future. In her talk she drew parallels with the current debate about the place of statues honouring Confederate soldiers in the United States.

Rotarian Colin de Fleury expressed the thanks of the Club membership and wished Katrina success with her studies and her ambition to secure a post with UNESCO.
