Main Speaker:

Sending Out Ireland's PoorProfessor Jeffery’s research interests encompass a wide range of topics in Irish, British, and British imperial history. A particular emphasis has been on Ireland and
the First World War. He has written a biography of the Irishman, Sir Henry Wilson,
who was professional head of the British army in 1918–22 and is the only British
Field Marshal to have died in action, having been assassinated on his doorstep
in London in 1922 by two fellow Irishmen.
In his lecture, Professor Jeffery will include the migration stories of five of his great-uncles who fought in the First World War. (read more..)
