Hosted by the National Library of Ireland and benefiting from the use of its collections, this course will explore the events surrounding the 1916 Rising. Lectures will reveal the context, development, course and aftermath of the rebellion as well as issues surrounding its interpretation and commemoration. Manuscript material, documentary footage, contemporary newspapers, ephemera and the Library’s photographic collection will elucidate the subject for participants. The course will conclude with a field trip to the excellent Easter Rising Exhibition at the Collins Barracks Museum.
This course will take place in the seminar room of the National Library on Kildare Street.
