Welcome to Glasnevin Cemetery Museum

Spring Lecture Series 2015

Glasnevin Trust & Trinity College Dublin

'Becoming revolutionary: The year before 1916'

Séamas Ó Síocháin (Maynooth University)

"This awful calamity in Europe": Casement in Germany, 1915'

Who were the Irish revolutionaries and how did they become involved in a cycle of events that would culminate in the rebellion of 1916? What were they doing in 1915? This series of lectures digs deeper than the rebel leaders, interrogating the lives of some of the not-so-famous revolutionaries, their thoughts, their hopes.

Séamas Ó Síocháin is Emeritus Senior Lecturer in the Department of Anthropology, Maynooth University. His publications include: Exhibit Ireland: Ethnographic Collections in Irish Museums (editor with Pauline Garvey and Adam Drazin), Dublin: Wordwell Press, 2012; Social Thought and the Irish Question in the Nineteenth Century (editor and contributor), Dublin: UCD Press, 2009. Roger Casement: Imperialist, Rebel, Revolutionary (Lilliput Press, 2008 and Amazon e-book, 2012). He was a founder member of the Anthropological Association of Ireland and editor for five years of the Irish Journal of Anthropology.
