Independent Ireland and Transatlantic Diplomacy
Friday, 19 March at 12.30pm EST
Since 2012, Ireland’s Decade of Centenaries has seen us examine and explore the series of seminal events that, politically and socially, shaped our island a century ago. During the spring of 2021, Ireland’s Embassy and Consulates across the United States join with the American Conference for Irish Studies & Irish Studies programmes across many of this nation’s leading Universities to host a series of lectures and panels reflecting on the final – and perhaps most contested – years of this formative decade and its impact in the longer term. We will consider how these seismic events were viewed across the Atlantic and the role the United States - and Irish-America - played in shaping them, recognising that, for many Irish emigrants, independence was a farther shore they strove to reach.
This third seminar of our series – Independent Ireland and Transatlantic Diplomacy is hosted by New York University's Glucksman Ireland House, in association with the ACIS & the Consulate General of Ireland in New York. The panel will feature - Francis M. Carroll (University of Manitoba); Marion R. Casey (NYU); Miriam Nyhan Grey (NYU); Bernadette Whelan (University of Limerick) – as well as Ireland’s Ambassador Daniel Mulhall.
