Description

A WORLD REBORN: GLOBALIZING IRELAND’S REVOLUTION
The idea that Easter 1916 formed part of the ‘seamless robe’ that was Ireland’s experience of the First World War has become increasingly accepted in Ireland, but what are the implications of this for understanding Ireland’s post-war experiences? To what extent must Ireland’s revolution be understood within a global, as well as nation-state, framework, and how might this be achieved? Join us for a lecture by prominent Irish writer and historian Dr. Fearghal McGarry as he explores these critical issues. Presented in partnership with the American Conference for Irish Studies, University of Missouri-Kansas City and Kansas City Irish Fest. FREE with RSVP | J.C. Nichols Auditorium
