Irish history from the Great Famine to the era of the Troubles

Post 16 of 76

Patrick MannionDr. Patrick Mannion, who has been teaching as a Sessional Instructor in the History Department at Memorial University since 2014, will be offering a six-week intersession semester, May 7th-June 20th. This course will provide students with a comprehensive, analytical survey of modern Irish history from the Great Famine of the 1840s to the era of the “Troubles” in the late-twentieth century.

Through the critical lenses of religion, gender, and class, we will cover both social and political histories of Ireland. The primary focus of the course will be on the evolution of Irish nationalism and unionism in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; and on the complex, shifting relationship between Great Britain and Ireland.

Dr. Mannion’s research specialty is Irish ethnicity and identity in Newfoundland, the Maritimes, and New England.
