About the Speakers

Current video

Dr. Anne Dolan (Trinity College Dublin) on writing the history of the Irish Civil War.

Anne is Associate Professor in Modern Irish History. Her research has examined the nature and the legacy of the Irish civil war and she is currently working on an examination of violence and killing throughout the revolutionary period in Ireland.

She is particularly interested in the consequences of violence at a political and at a personal level and in placing the Irish experience in a wider context. This work stems from a broader interest in the nature of the two states in Ireland in the inter-war period. Her research is also moving into the area of popular experience in twentieth century Ireland.
