Anne Dolan is Associate Professor in Modern Irish History, Trinity College Dublin.
Her research focuses on the nature and the legacy of the Irish civil war, with a particular interest 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.
In this talk, Professor Dolan will consider aspects of witness testimony and ask: To whom do we choose to listen when we write the history of violence in revolutionary Ireland?
Her publications include:
- ‘No surrender here!’ The civil war papers of Ernie O’Malley (Dublin: Lilliput Press, 2008) (Ed. with C.K.H. O’Malley]
- Reinterpreting Emmet: Essays on the life and legacy of Robert Emmet (Dublin: UCD Press, 2007) (Ed. With P.M. Geoghegan and D. Jones).
- Commemorating the Irish Civil War: History and Memory, 1923-2000 (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2003) (2nd edition, 2006).
