Carlow College History Lecturer Dr Elaine Callinan will give a paper ‘The Two Irelands, Fact not Fiction!’ Campaigns & Consequences in 1918′ during the conference ‘Deeds not Words? Assessing a Century of Change’ at the National Museum on Saturday November 3rd.
This conference brings together a range of academics, historians and writers to explore changes and advancements in Irish society, particularly for women over the last 100 years since 1918. This was a year that saw significant social change in Ireland, including the end of World War I, the passing of the Representation of People Act and the 1918 elections. The conference poses the question, what has changed for society, since 1918, for better and for worse?
Conference organised in conjunction with the exhibition Votes for Women: Suffrage and Citizenship on display at the Houses of the Oireachtas, Leinster House, Dublin 2 until 14th December 2018. The Votes for Women: Suffrage and Citizenship exhibition will go on display at the National Museum of Ireland, Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks in 2019.
