In order to commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising, and to contribute to the process of national reflection that is currently in progress, the Defence Forces, in conjunction with the Centre for Military History and Strategic Studies at Maynooth University and the Trinity College Dublin Centre for Contemporary Irish History, will host a one-day conference in Dublin Castle on 15 October 2016 with the aim of exploring the ‘Emergence of Modern Ireland, 1912-2016’. The conference will explore political, social, economic and cultural developments in Irish history from the Home Rule crisis to the present day with a particular focus on military matters, including the history of the Defence Forces, and on the evolution of Irish foreign policy. Proposals are welcomed for papers that address any of these topics and contributions are encouraged from academia and also from within the Defence Forces and from Veterans' groups.
