Mary Kelly, professor of history at Franklin Pierce University, will lecture and discuss her newly-published book, "Ireland's Great Famine in Irish-American History."
A graduate of National University of Ireland, Galway and Syracuse University, Kelly's research interests include Irish Famine remembrance, the Boston Irish in the mid-19th century and a variety of topics related to Irish-American religion, politics and intellectual history.
Kelly teaches widely in American cultural, ethnic, intellectual, immigrant and gender history, in addition to foundational offerings in Modern Ireland and Europe. Kelly is also the author of "The Shamrock and the Lily: The New York Irish and the Creation of a Transatlantic Identity" published in 2005.
Copies of Kelly's books will be available for purchase at the lecture. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
This event is now full. Thank you for your interest.
