The International Architecture of 1916: Alice Stopford Green’s Circle
Tuesday, 5 November at 6.30pm


Writer and Historian Angus Mitchell will deliver a lecture on The International Architecture of 1916: Alice Stopford Green’s Circle.

Alice Stopford Green (1848-1929) is one of the forgotten voices of Ireland's Cultural Revival. As both intellectual and revolutionary, she wrote a new history of the Irish people that deeply influenced her generation. With her friend Roger Casement, she helped to organise the running of guns into Howth in July 1914. Elected as the first woman senator in 1922, her energy helped to shape national independence. Aside from her work for Ireland, this lecture will consider how Green's influence on colonial affairs in Africa and her close connection to centres of power in Europe and America linked Irish independence to larger configurations of resistance to the British Empire.
