Interview with Philip Orr as part of '1916 and Me / 2016 and Us'. Recorded in Queen's University Belfast in July 2016 by Real Smart Media for History Hub.ie.
'1916 and Me/2016 and Us' is a collaboration between University College Dublin School of History, Queen’s University Belfast School of History and Anthropology, UCD Digital Library and HistoryHub.ie, UCD’s public history website. It is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peace and Reconciliation Fund and involves the recording of a number of short interviews with people talking about what 1916 means to them.
The year 1916 and the events that occurred during it can mean multiple things to different people. By asking simply ‘what does 1916 mean to you?’, this project hopes to explore the political, social, and cultural legacies of the year 1916 in the construction of identity and historical consciousness among people and communities across the island of Ireland, north and south.
'1916 and Me/2016 and Us' consists of recorded interviews with various individuals (academics, community leaders, politicians, artists, writers and members of the public) giving their views on the significance of the events of 100 years ago and also on the meaning of commemoration. Some of the interviews will be featured on UCD's History Hub and all interviews will be deposited in UCD's Digital Library for long term preservation.http://historyhub.ie/1916-a...
