VENUE: Pearse Museum & UCD
Revolution: Results and Reappraisal is a two-day conference and public exhibition in the Pearse Museum and on the UCD Belfield Campus to be held in February 2016.
In collaboration with the Pearse Museum, the Gaelic League, the UCD National Folklore Collection, and the UCD James Joyce Library Special Collections, the exhibition will showcase Revival material, including documents, journals, and accounts of the Risingnot previously seen by the public. This project, the result of international collaboration with the foremost international scholars in Irish cultural revival, builds on the established UCD tradition of Irish language by founder members of the Revival movement, Douglas Hyde, Agnes Farrelly, and Eoin MacNeill for example. This conference will showcase the role of UCD in Irish language scholarship for over one hundred years, as one of the foremost institutions in the implementation of the scholarly Irish language Revival. The conference will review and examine the effect of the events of the revolutionary period on Irish language, literature, and culture with specific analysis also on the role that the work of the Gaelic League played in twentieth century Irish society.
