‘Remembering the Easter Rising and the End of Empire’

Sara Dybris McQuaid opened the series by exploring how and why last year’s centennial commemoration of the 1916 Easter Rising saw new transnational narratives emerge alongside the tried and tested national mythologies. The role of the Rising in inspiring other anti-colonial struggles around the British Empire has reverberated in a number of commemorative forms and products inspired by increased immigration to Ireland and the use of comparative anti-colonial struggles and the exchange of revolutionary ideas across nations has been especially prominent in the case of India.
