University Archives And Community Organizations: Ensuring Access Through Collaboration, Jessica R. Holden, Andrew Elder, Joanne Riley

Prof Begins History Project With Irish American Immigrants, Gerald F. Reid 2014 Sacred Heart University

Prof Begins History Project With Irish American Immigrants, Gerald F. Reid

Gerald F. Reid

An oral history project has been started with students on the lives of Irish American immigrants. With the help of students from his “Ethnography of Ireland” class, Reid records student interviews with Irish-American immigrants using high-quality digital audio recorders. The recordings and transcripts will then be archived with the Connecticut Irish American Historical Society and, hopefully, at the University as well.


Arthur’S Heirs: Situating Medieval Welsh, Spanish, And Scandinavian Texts In Their Literary And Historical Contexts, Nahir I. Otaño Gracia 2014 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Arthur’S Heirs: Situating Medieval Welsh, Spanish, And Scandinavian Texts In Their Literary And Historical Contexts, Nahir I. Otaño Gracia

Doctoral Dissertations

This dissertation addresses a significant gap in Arthurian scholarship by adapting postcolonial and translation theory to analyze Medieval Arthurian literature from the peripheral cultures that interacted throughout the Irish Sea and the Atlantic littoral. This project uses a similar approach as that traditionally employed in Mediterranean studies to investigate Arthurian texts and related materials from the Celtic (Irish and Welsh), Scandinavian (Norwegian and Icelandic), and Iberian (Castilian and Catalan) cultural peripheries to point out both the local and transcultural roles of these texts. By highlighting that Arthurian literature was not only transmitted from Britain through France to the rest of ...

The Saint Of Llanbadrig: A Contested Dedication, Deborah K.E. Crawford 2014 Independent Scholar

The Saint Of Llanbadrig: A Contested Dedication, Deborah K.E. Crawford

e-Keltoi: Journal of Interdisciplinary Celtic Studies

Located on the Isle of Anglesey in northwest Wales, the medieval church of Llanbadrig is the pride of the nearby village of Cemaes, on Cemaes Bay. There is a strong local tradition that the church is dedicated to Patrick, Apostle of the Irish. However, reporting of that dedication has been divided between the patron saint of Ireland and one Padrig ab Alfryd, a saint associated with northern Wales. The issue of the dedication is important to the community of Cemaes. A resolution is also needed for scholarly purposes.

The Shanachie, Volume 26, Number 4, Connecticut Irish-American Historical Society

The Shanachie (CIAHS)

For more than 300 years, the most compelling reason that caused Irish people of all origins and religions to come in large numbers to the American colonies and the United States was economic opportunity. More simply: jobs. While the Irish are usually labeled as canal builders and domestic servants, a more accurate reading is that they were Jacks and Jills of all trades. In a young nation that was expanding geographically and economically, there was a constant need for workers. The Irish were able and willing. This issue of The Shanachie demonstrates the kind of fascinating information that is available ...


The Call Of The Sidhe: Poetic And Mythological Influences In Ireland's Struggle For Freedom, Anna Wakeling 2014 Ouachita Baptist University

The Call Of The Sidhe: Poetic And Mythological Influences In Ireland's Struggle For Freedom, Anna Wakeling

Honors Theses

The mythology of Ireland is millennia old, birthing a poetic tradition that has endured with the nation. This presentation explores how important Ireland's mythological heritage has been to its people, sustaining their fighting spirit during foreign invasions, political instability, and conflicts with England. The work if William Butler Yeats, in particular, embodies the struggles between the Protestant Ascendancy and the native Irish; Christianity and paganism; the Gaelic poetic tradition and newer English literature; and the push for peaceful independence negotiation versus the radical revolutionary movements inspired by ancient heroes. His life and poetry serve as a lens that brings ...


Stratalinguistics And Shifts In Power: Changing Perceptions Of Ethnicity In Post-Roman Britain, Graham David Sean O'Toole 2014 University of Colorado Boulder

Stratalinguistics And Shifts In Power: Changing Perceptions Of Ethnicity In Post-Roman Britain, Graham David Sean O'Toole

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Recent trends in the study of Roman Britain have been exposed to the new study of “stratalinguistics” as a means of tracking and explaining certain linguistic phenomena. Peter Schrijver began this process by suggesting that a heavy Latinization of the lowland zone caused deep phonological changes to Brittonic both in the Roman and the post-Roman period. Schrijver’s stratalinguistics suggest a Latin superstrate in the Roman period and a Latin substrate in the post-Roman period. I will take this conclusion, along with archaeological and literary evidence, and suggest a strong change in the perceptions of power in with the departure ...
