The Sir John T. Gilbert Commemorative Lecture, 2006

The Gilbert Lecture Series was inaugurated in 1998, the year which marked the centenary of the death of Sir John T. Gilbert. The aim of the series is to celebrate the life and work of Gilbert, and the history of Dublin, the city whose past he wished to uncover and bring before a wider public.

The ninth Sir John T. Gilbert Lecture: Professor Andrew Carpenter's 'Mrs Harris, her pocket and her petition: some thoughts on Swift's Dublin Castle poems of 1699-1701', was delivered on 23 January 2006 at Dublin City Library & Archive, Pearse St., and chaired by the Deputy Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Bronwen Maher.
