Wartime Dublin
Prof. Richard Grayson (Goldsmiths, University of London) 

Traditionally, the story of Irish involvement in the First World War has been told in narratives separate to those of the Easter Rising and the wider Irish Revolution.  Richard Grayson's 2018 book Dublin's Great Wars, offered a new narrative which combined all these events and processes, showing how the conflicts were closely intertwined.  It also told the stories of men who fought for the British Army during the First World War, and then against it in the War of Independence.  In this talk, he will discuss his methods, narratives and analysis.
