Amy Martin, interim director of the Harriet L. and Paul M. Weissman Center for Leadership; professor of English of the Emma B. Kennedy Foundation; faculty director for SAW

This lecture will examine how Irish women poets represented the Great Famine from 1845-1852, particularly their exploration of the category of the "human" and the gendered experience of starvation. We will look at their legacy in later 19th century writings about famine and empire and in contemporary Irish poetic tradition.

Open to all alumnae, students, and guests.
