Welcome to Irish Famine Summer School Website

The 2017 Irish Famine Summer School will take place from 14th-17th June 2017 in Quinnipiac University, Connecticut. The theme is 'Children and the Great Hunger in Ireland'.

The Irish Famine Summer School is a joint initiative between the Irish National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park House,  and The Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac University. 

We are very excited to enter into this phase in the life of the Irish Famine Summer School which will see it alternate between Strokestown and other famine research centres. 

Please see the Call for Papers for 'Children and the Great Hunger' here Great Hunger & Children CFP
