VENUE: UCD Special Collections, Belfield, Dublin 4
Take a tour through a series of visually stimulating and informative panels on the cultural background and history of the 1916 Rising. The exhibition will explore the events of 1916 through a myriad of materials, specifically the books, documents, private papers, periodicals and ephemera held in UCD Archives and in UCD Special Collections at the James Joyce Library.
This unique public exhibition is to accompany the conference – ‘Globalising the Rising: 2016 in Context’ that will be held in UCD in February 2016. The Reading 1916 exhibition will showcase UCD’s rich, cultural collections, setting this material in its historical and bibliographical context.
In addition a wonderful descriptive, illustrated booklet will be available for conference delegates and visitors to the exhibition in the UCD Archives.
