    Abstract

    Marking one hundred years since the death of controversial Irish figure Roger Casement, the Naughton Gallery presents Roger, Roger, a discussion and screening event with artists Fionnuala Doran and Alan Phelan. Within their practices, both artists have been inspired by Casement, a complex man now remembered variously as a patriot, a traitor, and a gay icon. Doran’s graphic novel, The Trial of Roger Casement (SelfMadeHero, 2016), explores the startling downfall of Casement in comic book form, from his efforts to secure German backing for an independent Ireland to the circulation of his private journals, laying bare his sexuality.
