  2. Trinity in war and revolution 1912-1923

    Irish, Tomás, 1984-
    Dublin : Royal Irish Academy, 2015.

    This book situates the history of Trinity College Dublin within the great upheavals and changes that were taking place in Ireland and the wider world in the transformative period between 1912 and 1923. The period saw Trinity and its environs profoundly changed. The book uses Trinity as a way of exploring some of the central themes and tensions of these years, themes that are usually examined separately: Irish involvement in the First World War; the Easter Rising of 1916; the violent struggle for Irish independence; the end of the Civil War; and the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922. It views these events through the prism of the university's development, arguing that these contexts cannot be divorced from one another. Trinity was at the centre- physically, intellectually, symbolically-of these seismic events in local, national and international history, and each had a great impact upon the institution and its development in the twentieth century. Cumulatively, they transformed the university by 1923.

  3. The university at war, 1914-25 : Britain, France, and the United States

    Irish, Tomás, 1984-
    Houndmills, Basingstoke, Hampshire ; New York, NY : Palgrave Macmillan, 2015.

    "How did universities come to be central players in the prosecution of the First World War? The war, defined for many by battlefield stalemate and trench warfare, brought ideas into the front line for the first time, as scholars and scholarship worked with national governments to provide answers to the many challenging questions it posed. Drawing on examples from Britain, France, and the United States, The University at War, 1914-25 examines how universities were mobilized in wartime and the ethical challenges which this in turn posed for educational institutions. The wartime experiences of academia helped shape many modern educational practices and systems of higher education and saw scholars emerge from their 'ivory towers' in the guise of experts"--How did universities come to be central players in the prosecution of the First World War?
