Organised by Universities Ireland Historians Group, '1914: the Road to War' is the third in a series of annual conferences that will continue until 2023, and is part of a multi-annual programme of activities led by the UI Historians Group to reflect on the 1912-1923 period in Irish history. Marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, the conference will explore local, national and international responses to the war that reshaped modern Europe. As well as focusing on military and political
responses, ‘1914: the Road to War’ will consider the impact of the war on the home front, and the experiences of those who opposed involvement in the conflict.
