‘TITANIC - MYTH AND MEMORY’ an illustrated talk by Dr Leon Litvack on board SS Nomadic.
Dr. Leon Litvack, is a professor of Victorian Studies at Queen’s University Belfast. Litvack’s lecture on Titanic, Myth, and Memory is an exploration of the infamous ship’s enduring myths—some of which endure in popular culture to this day. The lecture is an amalgamation of historical, literary and musical explorations. When asked about his lecture’s multi-faceted nature, Litvack states that “both literature and music are expressions of culture,” and therefore function harmoniously together.Dr. Leon Litvack’s Titanic, Myth, and Memory presented new perspectives on the sensationalised tragedy of the White Star Liner, providing insight into the myths and memories prevalent to this day.
Reclaiming The Titanic Story for Belfast
Welcome to the Belfast Titanic Society
In recent years the story of Titanic in Belfast was somewhat over looked so in 1992 the BELFAST TITANIC SOCIETY was formed to preserve and research the story of Titanic and the other White Star Line ships built in Belfast. In 1996 the Society hosted the first world-wide Titanic convention to be held in Ireland – called ‘Titanic@home’, the event was instrumental in placing Belfast at the centre of the Titanic story. Our website was substantially redesigned in late 2012 with new links to the Society’s Facebook, Twitter and Flickr accounts. We are delighted that potential new members can now join, and existing members can renew, using an online process on our membership page. Our web site contains some unique resources, including some original research, so feel free to explore the story of Titanic in Belfast as you move through our pages.
