A Contested History – Commemorating the Rising
While commemoration in theory is about remembering the past, in reality it has a lot to do with contemporary political agendas.This talk will examine anniversaries and events – including the violence that broke out during the 1930s Commemorations and the establishment of the Easter Lily – in the ‘history wars’ that have been fought since Easter 1917 between those who seek to claim ownership of this pivotal event in our history.
