Conference: The Irisch Free State – 100 Years Later

Conference: The Irisch Free State – 100 Years Later

In May 1921, Ireland was partitioned under British law by the Government of Ireland Act, which created Northern Ireland. Both sides agreed to a ceasefire on 11 July 1921 and the Irish War of Independence (Cogadh na Saoirse) came to an end. The post-ceasefire talks led to the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty on 6 December 1921, as a result of which the Irish Free State was created.

We will be joined by our speakers Dr. Jenny Farrell from Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, Prof. Ralf Haekel and Prof. Dr. Joachim Schwend, Leipzig University, Pádhraic Ó Dochartaigh from Conradh na Gaeilge Bheirlín as well as some of our PHD students.

Our conference to celebrate the centenary will take place on 23rd October 2021 in the big auditorium (Jahnalle 59, Pausenhalle Süd, Haus 1, Großer Hörsaal, Campus Jahnallee).
