Connecting the global with the local through the prism of imprisonment: the case of Kilmainham Gaol, Ireland

Publikation: ForskningBidrag til bog/antologi

Since it closed in 1924 Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin has transitioned from being an infamous colonial prison to becoming one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions. Central to the ‘Decade of Commemorations’ through its intimate connection of the transition of Ireland to a semi-independent Free State it also potentially reveals more nuanced narratives of entanglement with international processes at the time. Utilising historic graffiti recorded between 2014-2016 this chapter will present the architecture of Kilmainham Gaol as an expected witness to Ireland’s interactions with global warfare and suffrage movements. In doing so it implicitly asks the question as to whether we need to pay more attention to atypical sources when exploring the relationship between the global and local.
