International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

After discussing some of the most important facts and figures pertaining to An Gorta Mór (the Great Irish Famine of 1845-1852), this article turns to some of the images of monuments, crosses, stones and sculptures erected in commemoration of those who succumbed during the period. Alongside the images are travelers' statements, many of which were captured by the author while journeying to 'dark pilgrimage' sites in Ireland, Canada and the United States.

Colonialism And Peace And Conflict Studies, Sean Byrne, Mary Anne Clarke, Aziz Rahman May 2018

Colonialism And Peace And Conflict Studies, Sean Byrne, Mary Anne Clarke, Aziz Rahman

Peace and Conflict Studies

The nature of colonialism is examined in this comparison of British colonial policy in Ireland and Canada toward Indigenous people. The histories and realities of Indigenous peoples’ experiences of colonizing violence are not adequately addressed by the dominant approaches of the democratic peace theory’s universalist neoliberal technocratic values, expectations, and assumptions (see Mac Ginty, 2013). PACS scholars and practitioners need new interpretive frames to make sense of the impact and consequences of colonialism and the intent of genocidal destruction across different colonial contexts in order to understand the deep roots of conflict (economic exploitation, internalization of oppression, racist ideology ...

An Investigation Into The Decline In The Use Of Fresh Potatoes And The Increased Demand For Processed Potato Products In The Foodservice Sector In The Leinster Area, Emily Gray

Level 3

The aim of this article is to examine the decline in use of fresh potatoes and the increased demand for processed potato products in the foodservice sector in Leinster. The study focused on the consumption and use of potatoes by chefs, restauranteurs, hoteliers, and managers in the foodservice sector. This was achieved by a survey questionnaire of one hundred and ten establishments of which sixty-five responded. The research also involved examination of background information and past literature, investigating when the decline of the potato occurred and the cause of that decline, and comparing data from the retail sector to the ...

Designing Peace: Peace Memorial, Calvin Bulan, Jason Hashimoto, Khan Meyer, Valerie Ribao, Johnathan Stanich, Morgan Wynne

Mānoa Horizons

During the Spring of 2017 fourteen students and four faculty members from both the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa School of Architecture and the Nagaoka Institute of Design in Japan collaborated on a series of design exercises to imagine and define spaces for peace in both Nagaoka and Honolulu. Each group had the opportunity to travel abroad, learn about the context, experience the culture, better understand the design problem and make new friendships. The academic and cultural exchange originated from recent peace commemorations between the two nations and is intended to pave the way for future generations to embrace ...

Staging Famine Irish Memories Of Migration And National Performance In Ireland And Québec, Jason King Dec 2016

Staging Famine Irish Memories Of Migration And National Performance In Ireland And Québec, Jason King

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In "Staging Famine Irish Memories of Migration and National Performance in Ireland and Québec" Jason King examines recent community theater productions about the Irish Famine migration to Québec in 1847. King explores community-based and national ideas of performance and the role of remembrance in shaping and transmitting the diasporic identities of Québec's Irish cultural minority. While most of the plays re-enact French-Canadian adoptions of Famine orphans as spectacles of Irish integration in Québec, David Fennario's Joe Beef: (A History of Pointe Saint Charles) (1984, published 1991) rehearses the history of the Canadian/Québec nation in terms of recurrent ...

"Torn From Their Mother's Breasts": The Battle For Impoverished Souls In Ireland, 1853-1885, Kristin V. Brig Apr 2016

"Torn From Their Mother's Breasts": The Battle For Impoverished Souls In Ireland, 1853-1885, Kristin V. Brig

Madison Historical Review

A world history analysis, this paper examines the struggle between Protestant governmental and Catholic private philanthropy in mid-nineteenth-century Ireland, exploring how each side waged a war of political and religious misunderstanding in an effort to gain control over the Catholic Irish poor. Ireland’s philanthropic scene in this period became a battleground on which the British government fought for political control and Catholics for religious control; however, neither group understood what the other fought for, waging a war of cross-purposes. Through an examination of this battle for control, this paper depicts the emergence of modern Irish welfare from the famine ...

Landscapes Of The Irish Language: Discursive Constructions Of Authenticity In The Irish Diaspora, Jill Vaughan Jan 2016

Landscapes Of The Irish Language: Discursive Constructions Of Authenticity In The Irish Diaspora, Jill Vaughan

Irish Journal of Applied Social Studies

Almost 2 million people in the North and South of Ireland identify as Irish speakers and an estimated 70 million around the globe can claim Irish heritage. While Irish ancestry may be distant for many, the Irish language is active in numerous locations in the diaspora, as documented in research profiling communities across the globe (e.g. Callahan, 1994; Garland 2008; Giles 2016; Kallen 1984, 1994; Noone, 2012a; Ó hEadhra, 1998;Ó Conchubhair 2008; Walsh & NíDhúda 2015 inter alia) and evidenced by the existence of many cultural and language groups. Census figures indicate that at least25,000 people currently speak the language in Canada, the United States and Australia alone (Statistics Canada, 2013; United States Census Bureau, 2015; Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2012), yet very few in-depth general accounts of Irish-language use in the diaspora exist. Linguistic practices ...


Tip O’Neill: Irish-American Representative Man (2003), Shaun O’Connell Nov 2015

Tip O’Neill: Irish-American Representative Man (2003), Shaun O’Connell

New England Journal of Public Policy

Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill, Man of the House as he aptly called himself in his 1987 memoir, stood as the quintessential Irish-American representative man for half of the twentieth century. O’Neill, often misunderstood as a parochial, Irish Catholic party pol, was a shrewd, sensitive, and idealistic man who came to stand for a more inclusive and expansive sense of his region, his party, and his church. O’Neill’s impressive presence both embodied the clichés of the Irish-American character and transcended its stereotypes by articulating a noble vision of inspired duty, determined responsibility, and joy in living. There ...

Vicious Cycle Or Business Cycle?: Explaining Political Violence In Northern Ireland After The Troubles, Lauren Burke May 2015

Vicious Cycle Or Business Cycle?: Explaining Political Violence In Northern Ireland After The Troubles, Lauren Burke

Res Publica - Journal of Undergraduate Research

There are currently two schools of thought that seek to explain the persistence of political violence in Northern Ireland, one with a sociopolitical focus and the other with an economic focus. Expanding on past economic theory, this paper utilizes several multiple regression models to test the applicability of the economic school's relative deprivation theory in the fifteen years since the Troubles were formally ended with the signing of the Good Friday Agreement. The basis of this theory is that as economic conditions worsen in a given area, the number of acts of political violence should also increase. This study ...

Wto Agricultural Trade And The Unfulfilled Promise Of Development, Destaw A. Yigzaw Jan 2015

Wto Agricultural Trade And The Unfulfilled Promise Of Development, Destaw A. Yigzaw

South Carolina Journal of International Law and Business

The World Trade Organization (WTO) was established with an alluring promise of enhancing the living standards of people around the world, creating jobs and spurring development, while ensuring equitable distribution of the fruits of trade, with particular regard to the needs of the poor. However, critics see the WTO as a mercantilist system tailored to the commercial interests of wealthy nations and their corporations, with little or no attention to the interests of the poor. What happens to agriculture affects the poor disproportionately. If spurring economic development and thereby enhancing the living standards of people is indeed the WTO’s ...


'On Behalf Of All Young Women Trying To Be Better Than They Are': Feminism And Quakerism In The Nineteenth Century: The Case Of Anna Deborah Richardson, Elizabeth A. O'Donnell Nov 2014

'On Behalf Of All Young Women Trying To Be Better Than They Are': Feminism And Quakerism In The Nineteenth Century: The Case Of Anna Deborah Richardson, Elizabeth A. O'Donnell

Quaker Studies

Historians of the early British women's movement have frequently drawn connections between the theology and practice of Quakerism and the involvement of female Friends in nineteenth-century 'women's rights' campaigns. These connections are usually expressed in terms of religious, organizational and environmental factors particular to Quakerism, and embody the assumption that the cultural milieu of Quaker women was peculiarly conducive to the development of 'feminist consciousness'. This article examines the complexity of these assumed links, through an exploration of the life and writings of Anna Deborah Richardson (1832-1872) of Newcastle Monthly Meeting. Through her close association with Emily Davies ...

The Global Food Crisis, Edited By Jennifer Clapp & Marc J. Cohen, Lisa Guo, David Rojas Feb 2014

The Global Food Crisis, Edited By Jennifer Clapp & Marc J. Cohen, Lisa Guo, David Rojas

Yale Human Rights and Development Law Journal

Between early 2007 and mid-2008, global food prices increased by more

than fifty percent. For people living in poverty in developing countries,

who might spend sixty to eighty percent of their income on food, such a

severe increase was devastating. The debilitating price increases resulted

in food riots across over forty developing nations. Although food prices

have fallen considerably since that period, they are still substantially higher

than 2005 levels. Thus, in a March 2009 interview with the Financial

Times, Jacques Diouf, Director-General of the Food and Agriculture

Organization of the United Nations, stated that the "food crisis is not ...
