Winter Lecture Series 2016
1916: Rebellion, War and Commemoration in Ireland and beyond
11th February 2016 "War, risings and rebellions beyond Ireland - the strategic context of 1916" David Murphy, Maynooth University
Ireland was not the only place to witness war-time rebellions, from the Maritz Revolt in South Africa (1914), to the Arab Revolt in the Middle East (1916-18) to the Russian Revolt (1917) internal conflict bubbled up in a number of combatant and non-combatant countries. This paper will explore the means by which the state dealt with such challenges during war-time, placing the Easter Rising in a wider, international context.
