During Easter week in 1916, as the United Kingdom was in the middle of World War I, armed insurrectionists seeking an independent Ireland rose up and stormed various British-held locations throughout the Emerald Isle. The occupation lasted only a week, but provided a spark that smoldered for the next century. In remembrance of the rebellion, the History Department at the University of Michigan has partnered with the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies to present a screening of the documentary, 1916 The Irish Rebellion. A discussion will follow the screening and feature the film’s producers and writer, as well as Thomas Bartlett, Professor Emeritus at the University of Aberdeen. Open to the public.
