The Albuquerque International Association is pleased to announce a lecture by Dr. Caleb Richardson that will address the implications of Brexit for Ireland—on both sides of the border. After the Brexit referendum in 2016, the complexities of untangling the UK from the European Union became clear. Negotiators spent years haggling over debt, trade agreements, legal jurisdiction, and everything up to and including the color of passports. But few anticipated how difficult it would be to sort out the details concerning the one part of the British Isles that now shared a land border with Europe: the island of Ireland.
Dr. Caleb Richardson is Associate Professor of History and Associate Chair of the History Department at the University of New Mexico. His first book, Smyllie’s Ireland: Protestants, Independence, and the Man Who Ran the Irish Times was published by Indiana University Press in 2019. He teaches courses in Irish history, the history of the Irish Diaspora, British history, historiography, the history of espionage, and counterfactual history. He also teaches a range of courses that utilize the “Reacting to the Past” pedagogy, which uses in-depth role-playing games to teach history.
