Dr Patrick Murphy, a founder member of the Nottingham Irish Studies Group, is giving a course for the University of Liverpool on “Ireland and the Left in an Age of Revolution”.
The aim of this series of six talks is to examine the role of the left from 1880 to 1930, from the Land War to the establishment of the Irish Free State. The left and its failure to find a voice in the new Irish state will be explored through six notable figures who attempted to bridge the gulf between Irish nationalism and socialism. Each session will look not only at the life of one of these six individuals but also at how the left was marginalised in the most turbulent period in modern Irish history. Read more.
The course, which is online, is open to everyone and no previous knowledge of Irish history is necessary. Enrolment is now closed.
