Course Description

‘The Great Hunger’ in which perhaps one million starved to death deeply scarred the Irish people and psyche, influencing the relationship between the Irish and England for the next 150 years. This class will look at the scale of the famine before critically examining the evidence for English culpability. To what extent was English xenophobia, ignorance or incompetence to blame? Or was there, as some historians claim, a deliberate policy of genocide to break a stubborn people to the will of their masters?
