Ireland's 1916 in Global Context: Connections and Comparisons, Conference at NUI Galway, 16-17 June 2016.

The purpose of this conference is to explore the significance of Ireland’s Easter Rising and other revolutionary events in the year 1916 in the context of growing challenges to the global imperial system. Our aim is to test the hypothesis that the Irish revolutionary generation was embedded in a range of global transnational networks and that the Rising itself has parallels with other revolutionary events around the world in 1916. The Easter Rising took place during a period of global revolutionary transformations that are often overshadowed by the 1917 Russian Revolution.
