We learned so much about this troubled period in our history, some of which is still going on. Who knew there was still a "peace wall" in Belfast. Looking at videos of Lorraine walking through some of the areas she was describing was almost like being there. We promptly started listening to "Say Nothing" again and this time it resonated even more. Excellent presentation.
I sat down to write my review about this lecture but what can you say about the History of Northern Ireland. It is fascinating disturbing and always thought provoking. Lorraine gave us a good look at the past in Belfast and a contemporary look at where it is today. Thank You
Lorraine's presentation was affected by audio/video sync issues that detracted from the overall production. Her first-hand knowledge of Belfast was a real plus as she showed us around the city. It's a very interesting topic, and I hope that Lorraine can remedy the technical defects for the next time.
Lorraine Mills spoke of “The Troubles” from her own personal experiences growing up which made her discussion of the history of the people and events so interesting.
This was a very informative presentation on the historical background of The Troubles and the critical events of that period. I appreciated that the discussion of political and social realities of Northern Ireland reached into the present and included current events. Lorraine's presentation was very well-organized. I've done some reading about this period of history in Northern Ireland and have visited Belfast and Derry, and I came away with a better understanding about the impact on real people's lives at the time. Lorraine did a great job of answering questions at the end of her presentation. The clips of her walking through parts of Belfast were helpful in "seeing" what she was describing. She was outstanding!
