This year the Parnell Summer School will take place from 11-15 August at Avondale House, Rathdrum, Co Wicklow.
The School will begin on Sunday 11th August with the Parnell Lecture:
Chair: Prof Donal McCartney
Dr Margaret Ward (Queen’s University Belfast) – Forging a feminist path: Anna Parnell and Irish political life
On Monday Dr Darragh Gannon (QUB) will discuss: Where in the world was the Irish Revolution? Power, politics, and the place of global commemoration.
(For more reading on this topic: this was the theme of History Ireland’s special commemorative series on the Irish revolution published in April.
The Irish revolution, 1919-21: A global history, is edited by Tommy Graham, Brian Hanley and Fearghal McGarry. Featuring contributions from a host of scholars in the field, it focuses on placing the Irish revolution in global context, with two key themes: the impact of transnational factors on the revolution in Ireland; and the impact of the Irish revolution beyond Ireland.
