Description

“Revolution within the Revolution? 1919 and the generation of 1916” by Roy Foster

Starts 7pm

Tickets £5

Lecture Series £20

In his book “Vivid Faces: The Revolutionary Generation in Ireland 1890-1923”, Roy Foster examined the backgrounds, personalities and ideas of the young Irish radicals who helped bring about the great sea-change in Irish political life instigated by the 1916 Rising. In this lecture he considers the subsequent shift to violent confrontation which initiated the Anglo-Irish War in 1919, and the extent to which this represented a further change in personal and political priorities, eventually bringing about an outcome rather different to the ideas and ideologies of the original “revolutionary generation”.

Roy Foster is professor of Irish history and literature at Queen Mary, University of London and emeritus professor of Irish history at the University of Oxford.
