EPISODE 4: Easter Rising Anniversary Roundtable

Join Northeastern University Graduate Students Matt Bowser, Bridget Keown, and James Robinson as we discuss the Easter Rebellion that sparked the Irish War of Independence, and whose 100 Anniversary just passed. We discuss some of the recent scholarship, the rising in World History, the role of women in the Easter Rising and their writing out of the history, Ireland and British settler-colonialism, and the Limerick Soviets. We touch briefly on the articles going around the internet about “Irish slavery” and the rebuttal. We wrap about Roger Casement and his diary, and the what-if of the Easter Rising.
