February Meeting

Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, 9th February at 7:00 p.m.

It will be online via Zoom as our speaker this month is Dr Andrew Newby, who will be delivering his talk from Finland. 

Dr Newby is Senior Lecturer in Transnational and Comparative History at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. His research covers a wide range of topics relating to Europe in the “Long Nineteenth Century”, particularly in relation to land reform, famine and aspects of nationalism and national / regional identity. 

You will remember Andrew from last April, when he delivered a talk on Joseph Fisher, Finland and the Ulster question. This time, he will be discussing the Irish and Finnish famines:

“This Terrible Visitation”: Contrasting the Great Hunger Years of Ireland and Finland.
