Having hosted last year's National Famine Commemoration Week, Strokestown Park House in County Roscommon is now preparing for the inaugural Irish Famine Summer School, which will run from 17 to 21 June 2015.

As 2015 marks the 170th anniversary of the Great Irish Famine, the Summer School will include an international, interdisciplinary conference to examine the Famine experience at a local and regional level.

Bringing together a network of Famine experts, local, national and international, the conference will approach the theme from the broadest possible historical perspective.

The Summer School and Conference is supported by Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac University and St Michael’s College, University of Toronto.

The draft programme for both events is now available. Click the logo to download pdf.
