On Friday 14 October 2016 Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, hosted a one-day symposium organised by its Department of English language and literature and supported by the Irish Research Council, entitled ‘Crisis and commemoration in modern Ireland, 1916-2016’. This one-day event explored how modern and contemporary Irish history can be understood as dialectical processes of crises, and then the commemoration of those crisis. The event had a particular focus on the Easter Rising of 1916. Speakers include Anne Fogarty (UCD), John Gibney (Glasnevin Trust), and Heather Laird (UCC). The symposium took place from 9am to 5pm in room T101, TARA Building, Mary Immaculate College. Explore the full programme here.
