A short history of the Roger Casement Summer School
The event was founded, as a Summer School in the Irish tradition, in 2017. It grew out of the commemorations of the 1916 centenary, and a general interest in Casement. The Summer School was held in 2017, 2018 and 2019. As a result of Covid it was cancelled in 2020 and 2021. During those years the commemoration on August 3rd were our only events. As of 2022 the Roger Casement Summer School and Festival is back in business.
The three main strands of the school – human rights (including linguistic and sexuality rights), Irish self-determination and an international order that protects against the machinations of empires and superpowers – are eternal.
