What Can the Great Irish Famine Teach Us About the World Today? with P.F. McDevitt

The loss of the potato crop in Ireland beginning in 1845 set in motion a chain of events that significantly altered the history of multiple countries. The problem of the crop failure was exacerbated by the colonial relationship between the Irish and the British. The religious, cultural, political, and economic currents that combined to create a substantial debate within Britain as to how best to address the death and dislocation caused by the potato blight are not dissimilar to those animating our current responses to problems from health care to refugees to religious minorities. This talk will explore some of the lessons the failures of the 1840s have for the contemporary world. 

Members free; museum admission.
