1916 and Very Private Places:
the accounts of Geraldine Plunkett Dillon and Mary Hamilton Norway
 
Considering two eye-witness accounts of Dublin in 1916, Lucy McDiarmid takes a fresh and original approach to the Rising, showing how the macro conflicts of empire and republic were registered in small private spaces: the Dillons' wedding bedroom in the Imperial Hotel, Grace Gifford Plunkett's chamberpot, and the Princess Mary gift box unearthed by Mary Hamilton Norway in the ruins of the GPO. 
 
Lucy McDiarmid's most recent book is The Irish Art of Controversy.  She is Marie
Frazee-Baldassarre Professor of English at Montclair State University; this talk is part of a project on eye-witness memoirs of 1916.

Lecture room 21.101, 21 University Square
