Ireland and the Americas : culture, politics, and history : a multidisciplinary encyclopedia by James Byrne( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 1,200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is a unique, multidisciplinary encyclopedia covering the cultural, political, economic, musical, and literary impact that Ireland and the nations of the Americas have had on one another since the time of Brendan the Navigator. Nearly 200,000 Irish immigrants and Irish-Americans fought in the American Civil War. Today, the American Ireland Fund, a nonpolitical and nonsectarian fund, has raised more than 200 million dollars for over 1,000 projects in Ireland. On a proportional basis, no other ethnic group has proven more inclined to emigrate or appears more widely scattered across the American continents than the Irish. "Ireland and the Americas: Culture, Politics, and History" aims to broaden the traditional notion of 'Irish-American' beyond Boston, New York, and Chicago. In additional to full coverage of Irish culture in those settings, it reveals the pervasive Irish influence in everything from the settling of the American West, to the spread of Christianity throughout the hemisphere, to Irish involvement in revolutionary movements from the American colonies to Mexico to South America. In addition, the encyclopedia shows the profound impact of Irish Americans on their homeland, in everything from art and literature informed by the emigrant experience, to efforts by Irish Americans to influence Irish politics. Ranging from colonial times to the present, and informed by the surge of academic interest in the past 30 years, "Ireland and the Americas" is the definitive resource on the profound ties that bind the cultures of Ireland, the United States, Canada, and Latin America
Women and the Great Hunger( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Even considering recent advances in the development of women's studies as a discipline, women remain underrepresented in the history and historiography of the Great Hunger. The various roles played by women, including as landowners, relief-givers, philanthropists, proselytizers and providers for the family, have received little attention. This publication examines the diverse and still largely unexplored role of women during the Great Hunger, shedding light on how women experienced and shaped the tragedy that unfolded in Ireland between 1845 and 1852. In addition to more traditional sources, the contributors also draw on folklore and popular culture. Women and the Great Hunger brings together the work of some of the leading researchers in Irish studies, with new scholarship, methodologies and perspectives. This book takes a major step toward advancing our understanding of the Great Hunger."--Back cover

Irish global migration and memory : transatlantic perspectives of Ireland's Famine exodus( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Irish Global Migration and Memory: Transnational Perspectives of Ireland's Famine Exodus brings together leading scholars in the field who examine the experiences and recollections of Irish emigrants who fled from their famine-stricken homeland in the mid-nineteenth century. The book breaks new ground in its comparative, transnational approach and singular focus on the dynamics of cultural remembrance of one migrant group, the Famine Irish and their descendants, in multiple Atlantic and Pacific settings. Its authors comparatively examine the collective experiences of the Famine Irish in terms of their community and institution building; cultural, ethnic, and racial encounters with members of other groups; and especially their patterns of mass-migration, integration, and remembrance of their traumatic upheaval by their descendants and host societies. The disruptive impact of their mass-arrival had reverberations around the Atlantic world. As an early refugee movement, migrant community, and ethnic minority, Irish Famine emigrants experienced and were recollected to have faced many of the challenges that confronted later immigrant groups in their destinations of settlement. This book is especially topical and will be of interest not only to Irish, migration, and refugee scholars, but also the general public and all who seek to gain insight into one of Europe's foundational moments of forced migration that prefigures its current refugee crisis. This book was originally published as a special issue of Atlantic Studies: Global Currents.--
The history of the Irish famine( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Great Irish Famine remains one of the most lethal famines in modern world history and a watershed moment in the development of modern Ireland that is controversial to this day. In the space of only four years, Ireland lost twenty-five percent of its population as a consequence of starvation, disease and large-scale emigration. The narratives of those who perished, those who survived and those who emigrated form an integral part of this history and these volumes will make available, for the first time, some of the original documentation. Comprehensive editorial apparatus accompany the original texts along with appendices that point the way for further study"--

The History of the Irish Famine : Volume III: the Irish Famine Migration Narratives: Eye-Witness Testimonies and Survivor Stories by Jason King( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Great Irish Famine remains one of the most lethal famines in modern world history and a watershed moment in the development of modern Ireland - socially, politically, demographically and culturally. In the space of only four years, Ireland lost twenty-five per cent of its population as a consequence of starvation, disease and large-scale emigration. Certain aspects of the Famine remain contested and controversial, for example the issue of the British government's culpability, proselytism, and the reception of emigrants. However, recent historiographical focus on this famine has overshadowed the impact of other periods of subsistence crisis, both before 1845 and after 1852. This volume breaks new ground in bringing together foundational narratives of one of Europe and North America's first refugee crises -- making visible their impact in shaping perceptions, public opinion, and patterns of memorialization of Irish forced migration. It documents eyewitness impressions of suffering Irish emigrants, and especially orphaned infants, which became iconic images of the Famine migration
