|UCD to host national conference as part of the State’s Decade of Centenaries programme, marking 100 years since the foundation of the Irish state|
On Friday 2 and Saturday 3 December 2022 UCD will host a national conference as part of the State’s Decade of Centenaries programme, marking 100 years since the foundation of the Irish State.
This major two-day conference seeks to explore the process of state formation amid an ongoing civil war, uncertainty over the future of the border with Northern Ireland, the evolution of the institutions of the state since 1922, and the challenges that state, society, and citizenry faced a century ago.
We would be delighted if students, teachers and any other interested individuals would like to attend. The conference is being held in-person in UCD and there will also be a live-streamed option.
A simultaneous English-Irish and Irish-English translation will be available for the duration of the conference, for both in-person and online attendees, and there will be sign language interpretation throughout.
All are welcome and there is no cost to attend. In order to assist us with managing numbers, especially for the in-person component of the conference, we are asking all guests to register below.
