Fall 2018 Dalsimer Lecture with reception to follow
The Fall 2018 Dalsimer Lecture, titled Black and Brown Amidst the Orange and Green: Toward a Multiracial History of Ireland, will be presented by Dr. Mark Doyle, Middle Tennessee State University.
The history of nonwhite people in Ireland extends much further, and is much more significant, than many people suppose. This lecture will unclover the deep history of Asian and African immigrants and visitors to Ireland in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, arguing for a new history of Ireland that not only incorporates the experiences of nonwhite people but also uses those experiences to understnad Irish attitudes toward race, immigration, and empire in the modern era.
Thursday, September 27 at 5:00pm to 7:30pm
