Lecturers Sean Taylor and Marilyn Lennon, who run the MA Space Programme, are interested in programming talks that challenge and provoke the students. For the 2013 autumn term, the aim of the series of talks is to bring a range of experts to the programme to discuss their expertise and research concerns in fields that have discreet languages, methods and structures.  The topics include ecology; food; migration; Ireland and Europe; labour & work practices; regeneration; the Archive and visibility.

Speakers include Dr. Pauline Conroy; Declan Redmond from UCD; Robin Hanan of the European Anti Poverty Network; artists Edia Connole and Scott Wilson of MOUTH; Tonie Walsh of the Irish Queer Archive; Piaras Mac Éinrí of University College Cork’s Emigre project; Rachel McAree, Education Curator, the Irish Architecture Foundation; Alastair Neil Roy, UCLAN and Katherine Atkinson, Project Support and Professional Development manager at Create.

Last year's talk series took place from October 2012 to March 2013.
