Glucksman Ireland House NYU to Present Ernie O’Malley Symposium on Modern Ireland and Revolution – April 25-26

March 19, 2014
N-261

Glucksman Ireland House NYU, on April 25th and 26th, will host the Ernie O’Malley Symposium on Modern Ireland and Revolution, at which twenty-five leading scholars will examine social, cultural, and political revolution in modern Ireland and its intersections with the life and times of revolutionary and author Ernie O’Malley.

Topics will include Irish republican intellectual history; feminism and guerrilla war; postcolonial approaches to Irish literature, history, and culture; the visual arts; music history; the history of the Irish War of Independence and Civil War; Irish autobiography, historiography, and folklore; and oral history.

The five keynote speakers are Luke Gibbons of NUI Maynooth, R.F. Foster of Oxford University, David Lloyd of UC Riverside, Nicholas Allen of University of Georgia, and Róisín Kennedy of UCD. They will be joined by twenty panelists from a variety of institutions.

Irish Republican Army leader Ernie O’Malley, who, in his stylistically innovative memoir On Another Man’s Wound (1936), integrated modernist technique with revolutionary political history, reinvented what it meant to tell the story of Irish anti-colonial struggle. His post-military papers are housed at the Archives of Irish-America at New York University.

This symposium is the final event being hosted by Glucksman Ireland House to celebrate its twentieth anniversary as the Center for Irish and Irish-American studies at New York University. The event is open to the public and free of charge. RSVP is recommended. A full schedule of the lectures and panels can be seen at: http://irelandhouse.as.nyu.edu/object/ne.ernieomalleysymposium.
