On 25 and 26 April 2014 Glucksman Ireland House NYU hosted the spectacularly successful Ernie O’Malley Symposium on Modern Ireland and Revolution, at which twenty-five leading US and international scholars examined social, cultural, and political revolution in modern Ireland and its intersections with the life and times of revolutionary and author Ernie O’Malley. This event marked the conclusion of a fourteen-month program of academic projects and public humanities to mark the milestone of Glucksman Ireland House NYU’s 20th anniversary. In his stylistically innovative memoir On Another Man’s Wound (1936), Ernie O’Malley integrated modernist technique with revolutionary political history and reinvented what it meant to tell the story of Irish anti-colonial struggle. Five impressive keynote lectures were delivered by Luke Gibbons of NUI Maynooth, R.F. Foster of Oxford University, David Lloyd of UC Riverside, Nicholas Allen of University of Georgia, and Róisín Kennedy of UCD. Mercier Press was pleased to coincide the American launch of the third volume in the series The Men Will Talk to Me with the symposium.
