New publication: ‘Suffrage and citizenship’

The text of the 2018 Kehoe Lecture in Irish History is now available as an IHR Open Access publication. In ‘Suffrage and citizenship in Ireland, 1912-18’, Professor Senia Paseta explores the close ties between the British and Irish suffrage movements. As Professor Paseta argues, women’s suffrage was also shaped fundamentally by the Irish Question. Suffrage did not exist in a vacuum: it influenced and was influenced by the main political question of the day—Ireland.
