In conjunction with The Hunger
Co-presented by BAM and Irish Arts Center
With Tom Creed and Donnacha Dennehy, Christine Kinealy, and Maureen O. Murphy
Moderated by Aidan Connolly

Tom Creed and Donnacha Dennehy, the director and composer of this season’s The Hunger, are joined by Maureen O. Murphy (PhD, professor, Co-Director of undergraduate Irish Studies at Hofstra University) and Christine Kinealy (PhD, Director, Ireland's Great Hunger Institute, Quinnipiac University) to discuss the Great Famine of 1845–52 in Ireland, its present-day effects and implications, and what it means to create an artistic work that brings to light new dimensions of historical narrative. Aidan Connolly, executive director of Irish Arts Center, moderates the discussion.
