Amid the political tumult in their British-controlled country in the early 20th century, the Irish increasingly turned to extravagant public pageants in marking significant historical, political, and religious events. A sort of precursor to today’s opening ceremonies at the Olympics, these elaborately staged versions of national identity – based on both history and myth – mobilized huge numbers of people and featured marching bands, intricate costumes, fireworks, and mock battles.

Joan FitzPatrick Dean, the Curators Professor of English at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, looks at the historical significance of these spectacles in a discussion of her new book, All Dressed Up. She presents a nation contending with the political upheaval and violence of the present by reimagining the past.
