Irish Rebellion and Militancy in Transnational Perspective


Irish Rebellion and Militancy in Transnational Perspective

During this ‘Decade of Centenaries’ in Ireland, there has been much interest and new scholarship in Irish history. However, the history of Ireland is too often studied in conceptual isolation. The first three decades in twentieth-century Ireland saw plans for devolution, resistance to it and mobilisation for its support, Civil War(s), Revolution(s), counter-insurgency, cultural revival, new ideas of nationalism and sectarian identity, state formation and consolidation, participation in overseas wars, and communal violence. None of that was unique to Ireland, either by contemporary or historic standards, yet an ‘exceptionalist’ vein remains prominent in Irish history.  This groundbreaking one-day conference aims to engage with themes of rebellion and militancy in Ireland and place them within the context of contemporary European events. Through comparative and transnational perspectives, historians may be better able to understand not only Irish history, but to address a global acceleration of paramilitary and revolutionary violence that followed the First World War. The conference will also provide an opportunity for those scholars adopting transnational and comparative approaches to meet and discuss their work.
 With a Keynote by Professor Charles Townshend, and four panels of new research, this event seeks to start new conversations on Ireland’s place in the twentieth century. For more information visit:  https://irishmilitancybirkbeck2018.weebly.com/
