Dinner discussion focused on “Imagining Ireland”, led by Visiting Faculty Member, Dr. Ciara Breathnach.

DATE: Wednesday, September 26th , 2012
LOCATION: Palladium Hall MPR 4th floor
FILM VIEWING: 5:45pm – 8pm; dinner to follow

“This Is My Father” is a poignant portrayal of class, poverty, gender and social history in early twentieth century Ireland. It is particularly impactful as it deals with an Irish-American high school teacher who is disillusioned with life and goes to Ireland to find his father, whom he never met. His mother moved away because of the stigma associated with illegitimacy. This is theme that forms part of Dr. Breathnach’s current research, which is focused on the social history of medicalization in Ireland and how Irish immigrant women coming from non-medicalized or ethno medical traditions manage in medical healthcare systems in New York from 1860-1922. Seats are limited, please RSVP to 13thstreetrc@gmail.com: First come, first serve.
