This explores the history of radicalism and dissent in modern Ireland through the print media. This course will explore how the print media has provided both an organisational and propaganda tool for radicals in modern Ireland. It will also examine key examples of dissenting voices in the mainstream media. From the Nation in the 1840s to Magill and Hot Press in the 1980s and 1990s, the role of the print media as a historical force, as well as historical source, will be revealed.
