"1916 as a Global Event" is a series of six high profile public lectures to be held in Newman House in 2015 and 2016 to underline the global repercussions of, and responses to, the Easter Rising of 1916.

1916 is often seen primarily in a national context, but it was an event that drew global attention and inspired other decolonisation movements. Guest speakers will include some of the international leading authorities on the period. There will be one public lecture every two months, starting in 2015. The lectures will be co-organized and co-sponsored by the Royal Irish Academy.

The Project Coordinator is Prof. Robert Gerwarth: robert.gerwarth@ucd.ie and for a full list of the lectures, please click here.
