The Famine Irish & Forced Migration: An Early Canadian Refugee Crisis @ Multiple Locations
May 22 – May 23 all-day
The Famine Irish & Forced Migration: An Early Canadian Refugee Crisis @ Multiple Locations | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

A two-day symposium | Event is open to the pubic. All welcome.

This two-day symposium features speakers from the academic, heritage and arts sectors
in Canada, Ireland, and the USA who are active in the production, curating, and promotion
of knowledge about the Irish Famine. The speakers will consider the immediate and
long-term impact of the arrival of Famine Irish forced migrants in the united Province of
Canada. They will also address how new scholarship about the famine is being brought into the public domain through museums, memorials, and online public history initiatives on both sides of the Atlantic.


For over 500 years, Irish men, women, and children have crossed the Atlantic to Canada.
Yet never during that time had people arrived in such great distress as those immigrants
and refugees fleeing the Great Irish Potato Famine in 1847. During the famine period
(1845-1851), a million or more died and a further million emigrated in the worst
demographic catastrophe in nineteenth-century Europe.

Keynote Speakers:

Mark McGowan (University of Toronto) and Michael Collins (Booker Prize-nominated author)

Locations:

Archives of Ontario, York University May 22-23, 2018
St. Michael’s College, University of Toronto, May 22
