The Irish, Boxing, and the Making of New York
Professor Patrick Griffin (Notre Dame) will give a seminar entitled 'The Irish, Boxing, and the Making of New York' in the School of History, on the 17th February at 4pm in Room G109, Newman Building.
Professor Patrick Griffin is the Madden-Hennebry Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame and the director of its Keough-Naughton Institute and the Harmsworth Professor of American History at The Queen's College, University of Oxford.
Griffin’s research explores the intersection of colonial American and early modern Irish and British history, focusing on Atlantic-wide themes and dynamics. He has published work on the movement of peoples and cultures across the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the process of adaptation. He also examines the ways in which Ireland, Britain and America were linked during the 17th and 18th centuries. He has studied revolution and rebellion, movement and migration, and colonization and violence in each society in comparative perspective.
