Re: the 1916 Rising: Revivalism, Republicanism, RemembranceThe Irish 1916 Rising presents fascinating intersections between cultural, literary, and political revolutions. As the âPoetsâ Rebellionâ moniker indicates, the authors of the Rising were poets and political revolutionaries, as well as key activists in the Gaelic and literary revivals. Papers on the âreâ prefix as it recurs in revolutionary and revivalist rhetoric and in commemorative events are especially welcome. The 2016 centennial offers an occasion to reflect on the discourse surrounding 1916, and on the controversies over commemorating the event in 1966.
