Wed, 12 May 2021 14:00 – 15:15 Online Event via Zoom
The years 1900-1925 encompass some of the most significant events in Ireland’s modern history, from the introduction of the Third Home Rule Bill to the First World War, Easter Rising, partition of Ireland and the creation of two new states.
To mark this series of centenaries, PRONI has partnered with the University of Kent and the History Teachers’ Association NI (HTANI) to produce a resource centred on contemporary documents from the PRONI archive. The resource provides accounts from a range of sources and perspectives and is tailored to support ‘A’ level study, but will be of interest to anyone exploring this period in our history.
Speakers will showcase the resource and discuss a selection of the records. This session will include presentations by:
Janet Hancock, Deputy Head of Public Services, PRONI
Dr Timothy Bowman, Reader in Military History, University of Kent
Jim McBride, secretary of HTANI
This event is taking place on Zoom. Registration closes one hour before the event and an invite link will be sent to everyone registered one hour before the beginning of the event.
