This course brings an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the Great Irish Famine (1845-1852). The course will address four questions: What were the conditions in Ireland that led to the Great Irish Famine? Was the Famine an act of nature or a failure of public and private responsibility? How did the Famine change Ireland and the world? What is the legacy of the Great Irish Famine?
