Roundtable Zoom Session December 10

Save The Date

Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022, 4pm

This session will be on “The Distinctive New York Irish.”

Professor Timothy Meagher will discuss why New York Irish are distinctive among the Irish in America.
He will discuss:

  • The variables that have differentiated the New York Irish from other Irish urban communities.
  • How Irishness in New York has been unlike experiences of Irishness elsewhere.
  • The importance of the New York Irish community for Irish America in general, particularly in politics, labor, religion, nationalism, and economic mobility.

He will also reflect on The New York Irish, the definitive multi-disciplinary history on people of Irish heritage in Gotham, which he edited with Ronald Bayor some 25 years ago.

Linda Dowling Almeida will moderate this unique session.

Timothy Meagher has written and edited important books on the Irish in America including Inventing Irish America and From Paddy to Studs. He is retired from the history faculty at Catholic University of America where he was also Curator of American Catholic History Collections, and University Archivist.

Roundtable members will receive emails with links and passcodes for the session during the two weeks before the Session.
