Irish Theater Critic and Scholar Fintan O’Toole Presents
"Don't mention the war: the suppression of Irish cultural memory of the Great War"

2014 Eugene Meyer Lecture

Monday, April 21, 2014

Fintan O’Toole, one of Ireland’s leading public intellectuals, is the Leonard L. Milberg '53 Visiting Lecturer in Irish Letters at Princeton for spring 2014.

Eugene Meyer (1875-1959), for whom the annual lecture and the Eugene Meyer Chair in British History and Literature are named, was the owner and publisher of the Washington Post, chairman of the Federal Reserve, and first president of the World Bank. Previous Eugene Meyer speakers include Sir David Cannadine, Andrew Roberts and Colm Tóibín.

In this year's Eugene Meyer Lecture, Mr. O’Toole will talk about three Irish works of art that responded in important ways to the First World War and how each of them was suppressed or censored.
