Presented by: John Day Tully, PhD

In the 1930s, both the Irish in Ireland and the Irish in the United States were struggling with ways to define and defend their sense of purpose and identity. This talk explores how the Irish and Irish Americans negotiated their new identities and how each struggle played itself out, especially before and during World War II. Through an examination of politics, diplomacy, Irish-American literature and comics, and the voices of Irish and Irish-American leaders, the relationship between the Irish on both sides of the Atlantic will be discussed.
