Book Talk: Irish Canadian Conflict and the Struggle for Irish Independence, 1912-1925
Adjunct faculty member Robert McLaughlin will give a talk on his book – Irish Canadian Conflict and the Struggle for Irish Independence, 1912-1925 – on Tuesday, April 9, at 4 p.m., in the Regents Commons of the Shaw Center.
McLaughlin is an adjunct instructor of history at Hillyer College and the College of Arts & Sciences.
Between 1912 and 1925, Ireland convulsed with political and revolutionary upheaval in pursuit of self-government. Canadians of Irish descent, both Catholic and Protestant, diligently followed these events, and many became actively involved in the dramatic events overseas.
In his book, McLaughlin provides strong evidence that neither time nor distance diminished Irish Canadians’ attachment to their familial homeland or their identification with their respective ethnic communities in Ireland.
