The Irish Revolution, 1912-23: Context (HIH3158)

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. Analysis of the lively field of Irish Revolutionary historiography provides vital social and political background to this formative period: Why did violence supplement – even replace – political dialogue between Irish people and the British state, before and during 1912–23? The co-requisite Sources module (HIH3157) will facilitate close focus on the primary sources available for the study of Ireland’s revolution.
