The second conference in the annual series 'Cork studies in the Irish revolution' will take place in University College Cork on 1-2 March 2013, under the title 'The Cause of Labour: 1913 and beyond'. It will focus both on the hugely significant Dublin lockout of 1913, and the more general theme of the role of labour during the 'revolutinonary decade' in modern Irish history, 1912-1923. The event has attracted over 30 speakers, including some of the most influential scholars currently working in the field, such as Emmet O'Connor, Padraig Yeates, Kieran Allen and Conor Kostick. Among the many topics to be considered are women and the labour momvement; the role of social class during the independence struggle; the response to the Lock-out in Britain and America; the role of the Roman Catholic church to the labour question; and many more.
The event is free to all who wish to attend.
