The Other 1916 Conference
Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology
June 3rd 2016
Call for Papers
The years 1916-1922 saw the nascent Irish nation take shape between the Easter Rising and the birth of the Irish Free State. The same years also function as a crucible for literary and artistic modernism, in which the relatively lean publication year of 1916 helps forge the explosion of publishing activity associated with modernism's annus mirabilis, 1922. This conference seeks to re-evaluate narratives of 1916 within each of these contexts, with a particular focus on what has often been occluded from each of these narratives.
