UNIVERSITY EDUCATION IN IRISH: CHALLENGES AND PERSPECTIVES
DUBLIN CITY UNIVERSITY, FEBRUARY 7-8 2003

This conference - "University Education in Irish: challenges and
perspectives" - is being organised in the context of the ongoing Irish
national debate about how best to develop third-level education
through the medium of the Irish language. The conference is being
organised by the Irish-medium centre for enterprise education,
FIONTAR, at Dublin City University. FIONTAR wishes to contribute to
this debate by focussing on the strategies required to serve the
scattered Irish language community, on an all-Ireland basis. To this
end, we have invited experts dealing with university education in
Ireland and specialists from other countries where minority languages
are spoken.

or from conference co-ordinator, John Walsh at John.Walshdcu.ie

Please note that the conference working languages are Irish and English
only.
