MILWAUKEE — Irish historian R.F. Foster of Oxford will discuss his recent book during a series of public lectures at Marquette University to highlight the centenary of the Easter Rising in Ireland.
Robert Fitzroy "Roy" Foster, who publishes as R.F. Foster, will discuss his latest book, Vivid Faces: The Revolutionary Generation in Ireland," Monday, April 18, at 4:30 p.m., Raynor Memorial Libraries Beaumier Suites, 1355 W. Wisconsin Ave.
Foster is the Carroll professor of Irish History at Hertford College, Oxford, United Kingdom.
"Roy Foster is arguably the most important Irish historian of his generation," said Dr. Tim McMahon, associate professor of history, who is organizing the series with Dr. Leah Flack, assistant professor of English.
The series, titled "Reconsidering the Rising," is possible due to a Mellon Grant awarded by Marquette's Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences. All events are free and open to the public.
"This series will expose students and the wider Marquette community to the latest scholarship on the literature and the historical interpretations of the Irish revolution," McMahon said.
