The Irish Revolution, 1912-23: Sources (HIH3157)

30 credits

During 1912-23, Ireland experienced radical changes in its governance and society. This module, which requires no prior knowledge of Irish history, explores an extraordinary period of revolution, guerrilla warfare, civil war and Partition. Through close study of the available primary sources, you will come to understand the roots of current tensions within and between Britain, the now separate Republic of Ireland and a Northern Irish state still joined to the UK. The co-requisite Context module (HIH3158) will provide the social and political background to this formative period – and engage you with the lively field of Irish Revolutionary historiography.
