Boston College-Ireland Lecture Series 2007-8: The New Irish

One of the key issues in contemporary Ireland is the place and future role of the New Irish. Following on from Boston College’s involvement with the US State Department sponsored programme in 2006, “Leaders of Ethnically Diverse Communities in Ireland and Northern Ireland”, this year’s Lecture Series will bring together speakers to discuss the multitude of issues that relate to the New Irish. Each meeting will feature two or three speakers who will outline the main issues, and then engage the audience in discussion.
