History of Emotions Podcast Series No. 4: 'From grief to wonder: exploring emotions in Irish History'09 April 2021
This podcast explores revolutionary solidarity among Irish and other international radicals as a feeling of belonging: 'Belonging: feeling solidarity in the interwar world', Dr Maurice Casey
This emotional experience is traced through a series of radical spaces that shaped the lives of socialists and communists in the 1920s and 1930s; the border between Soviet Russia and the wider world, the public meeting and the prison cell. Paying attention to the feeling of belonging that activists gained through their revolutionary work provides an insight into how ordinary people sustained their faith in social transformation amid moments of upheaval and catastrophe.
Dr Maurice J Casey is the current DFA Historian in Residence at EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum. His research interests include histories of transnational radicalism and the history of social movements in modern Ireland.
The fifth and penultimate podcast in the series will be released on Friday, 16 April 2021. Listen to the other podcasts in the series here.
