Ireland's Great Famine in Irish-American History: Fateful Memory, Indelible Legacy

Wednesday February 24, 2021
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM


Drawing on material from her book Ireland's Great Famine in Irish-American History, Dr. Mary Kelly will discuss the role of the Famine in shaping Irish-American ethnic identity. Focusing on the long-term impact of the episode between the 1840s and 1990s, she explores the shadowed landscape of Famine legacy and its status in Irish-American culture today. Referencing contemporary press accounts and the writings of Famine survivors and their descendants, Dr. Kelly shows how interrogating Famine memory enables the Irish on both sides of the Atlantic to deal with the material and emotional inheritance of this tragic experience.
