‘Australia and the 1916 Rising in Ireland’ 

The 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland had a significant impact on the conduct of the Great War and a profound influence on Australian society. This gathering of leading Australian scholars assesses the place of the Rising in the nation’s military, cultural, social and religious history. The conference coincides with the centenary of Sir Roger Casement’s execution on 3 August 1916 and the end of the Rising. The presentations will enthral both scholars and students of Australian-Irish relations.

Refreshments will be provided.
