Dr. Anne Dolan
Associate Professor in Modern Irish History
My research has examined the nature and the legacy of the Irish civil war, but I am currently working on an examination of violence and killing throughout the revolutionary period in Ireland. I am 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. My research is also moving into the area of popular experience in twentieth century Ireland.

Teaching and Supervision
At undergraduate level I offer modules on the political, social and cultural history of Ireland in the twentieth century. In the Senior Freshman year I teach a broad module on twentieth-century Ireland examining the major themes which shaped the century from different different perspectives. At Sophister level I offer the modules ‘Ireland in the 1920s and 1930s’ (List I) and ‘Popular Culture in Twentieth century Ireland’ (List 3). I also teach a Sophister historiography module on the Irish revolutionary period, 1912-23 (List 2). I contribute to several modules on the M.Phil in Modern Irish History. In addition to that on ‘Politics and Violence in Twentieth-century Ireland’, I co-ordinate another module on Irish historiography. I also supervise dissertations at M.Phil, M.Litt and PhD level on a range of areas across the political, social and cultural history of Ireland in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
