Irish Lives in War and Revolution

Exploring Ireland's History 1912-1923

Through videos, assignments and discussions, through innovative approaches, this course introduces you to the history of Ireland in one of its most tumultuous periods. Considering the choices of those who fought in all sorts of ways for all sorts of causes, looking at the continuities of everyday life, this course allows us to question our broader understanding of these years. Looking at the intricate and complex tapestry of lives lived, often in the midst of chaos, we might begin to ask different questions of these years. Do we understand war better if we consider the motivations that took a single soldier to the front, whether that front was in Flanders or Dublin? Does our sense of the entire period change when we examine general social and cultural trends or when we investigate their effect on private lives? A basic interest in Irish and modern European history as well as a curiosity about how conflict shapes civil society. No prior knowledge or expertise is required. You can find out more about what to expect from this course in Ciarán Wallace’s post for the FutureLearn blog: “ Do you know what’s going to happen tomorrow? ” Join this course as we begin to consider these and other questions. You can use the hashtag #FLirishlives to talk about this course on social media.
