Event description

Description

A symposium organised by Trinity's School of Histories & Humanities.

The War of Independence was a time of deep uncertainty, hope and fear for many who lived through it.

A century on from the events of 1919-1921 how is that conflict being understood? Aside from commitment, courage and resilience on all sides what other aspirations, rivalries and ambitions motivated individuals and groups? What can other voices tell us about the period? This symposium will discuss some less prominent aspects of this complex struggle. Following three short presentations the discussion will be open to the audience.

Speakers

Dr Colum Kenny, Dublin City University
Dr Sinéad McCoole, Expert Advisory Group on the Decade of Centenaries
Dr Brian Hughes, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick
