11 January 2024

ADAPT Trinity College Dublin Academic Professor Jane Ohlmeyer featured last November on the podcast The World Turned Upside Down to discuss her new book Making Empire: Ireland, Imperialism and the Early Modern World. Prof. Ohlmeyer was joined by David Olusoga, Professor of Public History at the University of Manchester, at the Irish Embassy in London to chat about the new book thanks to Martin Fraser, Ireland’s ambassador to Great Britain

In Making Empire, Professor Ohlmeyer explores the influence of imperial processes on early-modern Ireland’s evolution and examines the role of both Catholic and Protestant Irish individuals in contributing to the establishment of global empires.
