Jason Knirck is a modern Irish historian who also teaches British and Western European history. His research concerns the Irish revolution and the foundation of the Irish Free State, focusing particularly on the political rhetoric of the period. His monograph Afterimage of the Revolution: Cumann na nGaedheal and Irish Politics 1922-32, which deals with the relationship between the Free State political party Cumann na nGaedheal and the legacy of the Irish revolution, was released in 2014 by the University of Wisconsin Press. His current work focuses on the Irish Farmers' Party in the 1920s, and the roles played by opposition parties in the Free State parliament. He is also co-editing with Ciara Meehan and Mel Farrell a collection of essays on Ireland in the 1920s that will be released in 2015 by Irish Academic Press.
