Details
Year: 2016
Organisation: Åbo Akademi University
Description
This interdisciplinary study analyses three 20th century fictional representations of the Great Irish Famine in relation to nationalist, revisionist, and post-revisionist interpretations of the event. It examines how writers of history and fiction respectively portray the causes and consequences of the famine, and particularly how they view the question of responsibility, which is still a matter of contention.
