Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac's new exhibition, ‘Visualizing Irish Independence’

HAMDEN -  Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac University will present the exhibition, “Visualizing Irish Independence,” beginning  Oct. 27, in the Arnold Bernhard Library on Quinnipiac’s Mount Carmel Campus, 275 Mount Carmel Ave., according to a release.
The exhibition is curated by professor Christine Kinealy, director of Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute, and Robert Young, the university’s Irish special collections librarian, the release said .
“'Visualizing Irish Independence,' is based on a cartoon collection from the late 19th century gifted to the institute by Gerald Moran, a research fellow at Galway University in Ireland,." the release said. "The color cartoons illustrate the Irish nationalist movement and depict historical figures of the day, including Irish political leader Charles Stewart Parnell and British Prime Minister William Gladstone."
“Some of the cartoons support Irish independence, which at the time was called, ‘Home Rule,’ and some of them oppose it,” Kinealy said, also in the release. “It is very clear, when you look at the images, that different newspapers had different political perspectives.”
The exhibition, free and open to the public, will feature 15 cartoons and rare books on Parnell and the politics of the day, the release said. It will be open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.
