Alice Milligan, 150

Dr Catherine Morris joins the ILS to reflect on the great Alice Milligan on the 150th anniversary of the birth of the poet, journalist, human rights activist.

It is fitting that first event of the ILS 2016-17 125th anniversary season marks the anniversary of one of its earliest members and a central figure in the Irish Cultural Revival. Dr Catherine Morris will reflect on her life and legacy of Alice Milligan on the 150th anniversary of her birth in her talk ‘Transformative Art and the Irish Cultural Revival.’

Morris’ book is the first study to explore the life and work of Alice Milligan (1866–­1953). A prolific writer for over six decades, she published her work in a range of genres (including poetry, short stories, novels, travelogues, biography, plays, journalism, letters, and memoirs). From 1891 to the 1940s, she founded a series of cultural, feminist, commemorative and political organizations that put the north on the map of the Irish Cultural Revival and provided a new resonance to Irish visual culture. The biography not only reclaims an unjustly forgotten Irish cultural and political activist during this foundational era in modern Ireland, but also provides new ways of interpreting the Irish Cultural Revival itself.
