|Hunger Museum - Helen Bennett|
"The program will also include a reading by acclaimed Irish novelist Michael Collins and feature several special events: a visit to Ireland's Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac, a stop at the Knights of Columbus Museum in New Haven, and an opportunity to explore New Haven."
"Ireland's Great Hunger Institute is a scholarly resource for the study of the Great Hunger, which is also known as An Gorta Mór. Through a strategic program of lectures, conferences, course offerings and publications, the institute fosters a deeper understanding of this tragedy and its causes and consequences. To encourage original scholarship and meaningful engagement, the institute develops and makes available the Great Hunger Collection, a unique array of primary, secondary and cultural sources, to students and scholars. In educating people of all ages and backgrounds about the Great Hunger, the institute also supports the mission of Ireland's Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac."
