15-18 June 2022, University College Cork will host the Irish Civil War National Conference, to mark the centenary of the opening of hostilities at the Four Courts in Dublin. Working with the Department of Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht, this conference will align with the core principles of the Expert Advisory Group on Commemorations by encouraging, ‘multiple and plural’ perspectives on complex and contested events. The four-day conference will seek to explore political, social, cultural, military, and economic dimensions to the Irish Civil war.
A Special Issue of the Irish Studies Review. Vol.31, No.1 (February 2023). In the aftermath of the 2008 Credit Crisis, studies of capitalism made a rapid resurgence within American history-writing: works such as Sven Beckert’s Empire of Cotton, Bethany Moreton’s To Serve God and Walmart, Jonathan Levy’s Freaks of Fortune and Destin Jenkins’ Bonds of Inequality all raised serious questions not just about capitalism but also about adjacent issues of race, gender, religion, and the environment.
6-8 December 2021. ISAANZ 25 Conference. University of Auckland. Our intention is that the conference explores the theme "Ireland: History, Memory and Myth". A century after the Irish Revolution, and towards the end of the Decade of Commemorations, acts of remembering and mythologising the past figure significantly in the individual and collective lives of the Irish at home and abroad.
