Evening Lecture Series 2016: 'Literature and Revolution'

In this lecture series members of the School of English will present a series of talks on the relationship between literature and revolution. Literary texts of different eras and countless genres have portrayed various kinds of revolutions. Writers and their works have also actively participated in revolutions by helping to provoke, sustain, and celebrate, or, by contrast, avert and critique them. The series is inspired by the centenary of the Easter Rising. Some of the talks will focus on this historic occasion and its impact on Ireland's literature and culture while the rest will explore other revolutions along with their literary dimensions.

The ten weekly lectures will begin on Tuesday, 19th January 2016 at 7 p.m. in the Jonathan Swift Theatre on the ground floor of the arts building in Trinity College.

The schedule is available here.
