About this Event

Over the two-and-a-half days of this major labour history conference, which is part of the Government of Ireland’s Decade of Centenaries programme, sixty scholars will scrutinise the interplay between labour, gender, and class during the revolutionary period in Ireland. At the core of the conference, a series of five expert panels will discuss contentious questions: the role of trade unionists (including Irish immigrant trade unionists) in the revolutionary events; the impact of the struggle on the lives of women; the existential challenges presented by sectarian polarisation in the North-East; and the several competing ideologies in the labour milieu. Equally important are eleven spotlight panels, featuring original research from established and emerging scholars, which will shed particular light on the regional experience. The conference also includes an innovative theatre workshop, theatrical presentations, music, a History Ireland hedge-school, and a walking tour.

Details of the conference, including the schedule and campus, travel and accommodation information, can be accessed on our website here: https://ichlc.wordpress.com/labour-gender-and-class-in-the-struggle-for-irish-independence-c-1918-24/
