Launch of Marion Casey’s “The Green Space”

May 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join author Marion Casey to launch her new book, The Green Space, at Glucksman Ireland House! Featuring a rich assortment of sources and images, The Green Space: The Transformation of the Irish Image takes the history of the Irish image in America as a prime example of the ways in which culture and identity can be manufactured, repackaged, and ultimately revolutionized. Understanding the multifaceted influences that shaped perceptions of “Irishness” holds profound relevance for examining similar dynamics within studies of various immigrant and ethnic communities in the US.

Marion R. Casey is Clinical Professor of Irish Studies at Glucksman Ireland House NYU and Affiliated Faculty in the Department of History at New York University. She is co-editor of Making the Irish American History and Heritage of the Irish in the United States (2006).
