SRBIJA-IRSKA

Naziv predavanja

„Zaboravljeni front. Irska, Srbija i Solunski front. Manje nacije i periferija u Prvom svetskom ratu.”

„Flora Sends i njeno učešće u Prvom svetskom ratu.”

„Srpska vojska na Solunskom frontu”

 

Beogradski irski festival i Ministarstvo odbrane Republike Srbije obeležavaju stogodišnjicu proboja Solunskog fronta i kraj Prvog svetskog rata.

Iako ova istorijska epizoda ima veliki značaj za Srbiju, ostala je zanemarena u očima zapadne istoriografije. Upravo u rovovima Solunskog fronta srpski i irski saborci borili su se ne samo protiv neprijatelja, nego i protiv čežnje za domom i prepuštenosti zaboravu. Tri istaknuta istoričara, jedan irski i dva srpska, Dr. Conor Mulvagh, Dr. Danilo Šarenac i Puk.Dr. Slobodan Đukić predstaviće nam u svojim predavanjima kako je to bilo živeti, boriti se i umirati u rovovima Solunskog fronta.

Flora Sandes

Flora Sends (Flora Sandes) Britanka, rođena u irskoj porodici 22. januara 1876. godine, bila je jedina žena bitansko-irskog porekla koja je zvanično služila kao vojnik u Prvom svetskom ratu. U početku je bila volonter za St John Ambulance, ali kada je stigla u Kraljevinu Srbiju, usred ratne pometnje, zvanično se priključila vojsci Srbije. Uskoro je bila unapređena u čin kapetana. Njene ratne zasluge bile su tolike da je 2009. godine, jedna ulica u Beogradu ponela njeno ime.

Dr. Conor Mulvagh je predavač Irske istorije na University College Dublin (UCD). Trenutno istražuje istoriju UCD tokom irske revolucije. Dr. Mulvagh predaje na temu sećanja i komemoracije, kao i istoriju Britanije i Irske u 19. i 20. veku.

Dr. Danilo Šarenac je naučni saradnik Instituta za savremenu istoriju u Beogradu. Pripada grupi mlađih srpskih istoričara sa bogatim međunarodnim iskustvom. Diplomu je stekao na Univerzitetu u Beogradu, zvanje mastera na Univerzitetu u Budimpešti a doktorat ponovo na Univerzitetu u Beogradu.

IRELAND-SERBIA

Lecture Titles

“The Forgotten Front. Ireland, Serbia, and the Salonika Campaign; smaller nations and peripheries in the First World War”

“Flora Sands and her participation in WWI”

“The Serbian Army at the Salonika Front“

 

Belgrade Irish Festival and the Serbian Ministry of Defence mark the 100th anniversary of the Allied offensive and breakthrough at the Salonika Front and the end of the Great War. Although this historical episode has major historical significance for Serbia it remained neglected in the eyes of Western historiography. It was in trenches at Salonika Front where Serbian and Irish comrades-in-arms fought together against, not only the physical enemy, but against homesickness and sense of being nearly forgotten. Three prominent historians, one Irish and two Serbian, Dr. Conor Mulvagh, Dr. Danilo Šarenac and Col. Dr. Slobodan Đukić in their lectures will introduce us to the period and bring us closer to how it was to live, fight and sometimes die in the trenches of Salonika front.

Flora Sandes

Flora Sandes was a British woman born to an Irish family on the 22nd of January 1876. She was the youngest daughter of Samuel Dickson Sandes, a former rector of Whitchurch, County Cork, and Sophia Julia née Besnard. Sands was the only British/Irish woman to officially serve as a soldier in the First World War. She was initially a St. John Ambulance volunteer, but when she travelled to the Kingdom of Serbia she was formally enrolled in the Serbian Army due to the confusion of the war. She soon found herself subsequently promoted to the rank of Sergeant Major, and after the war, to Captain. So great were her deeds in the Serbian Army that, in 2009, to honour her memory, a street was named after her in Belgrade.

Dr. Conor Mulvagh is a lecturer in Irish History at University College Dublin (UCD) with a special responsibility for the decade of the centenaries. He is currently specialising in the Irish revolutionary decade (1912-1923). Dr. Mulvagh lectures on memory and commemoration as well as on nineteenth and twentieth century Irish and British history.

Dr. Danilo Šarenac is a Research Associate at Institute of Contemporary History, Belgrade (naučni saradnik Instituta za savremenu istoriju iz Beograda). Dr. Šarenac belongs to the cohort of younger Serbian historians with rich international experience. He got his BA at University of Belgrade, MA at Central European University in Budapest and PhD again at University of Belgrade.
