Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University’s second series of Famine Folios received first place in the American Alliance of Museums’ 2016 museum publication competition, according to a release.
"The AAM represents more than 30,000 museum professionals, institutions and corporate partners serving the museum field and is the lead organization for museums in the United States," the release noted.
“We are honored to receive this award from the AAM and delighted that the quality and scholarship of the Folios are being recognized by our peer institutions,” said Grace Brady, executive director of Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum, also in the release.
"The museum’s Famine Folio series are a unique resource for students, scholars, researchers and general readers. The essays are interdisciplinary in nature, and make available new research in Famine studies by internationally established scholars in history, art history, cultural theory, media history, political economy, literature and music. They are richly illustrated with works from the museum and related collections."
