Dr. Mary C. Kelly, our featured speaker, will share her findings on the topic “From Irish-American to American-Irish: The Irish Question and the Ethnic Identity, 1919-1922.” Her talk will focus on how the enduring bond between immigrant community and ancestral home has shaped and influenced Irish-American culture from earliest times. At the heart of that connection, the struggle for Ireland’s freedom has stamped its distinct imprint on the immigrant Irish story in the United States.
