2019 Hibernian Lecture:
"A Century of Suffrage: Catholic Activism, Class Consciousness, and the Contributions of Irish American Women"

Tara McCarthy will deliver the 2019 Hibernian Lecture, “A Century of Suffrage: Catholic Activism, Class Consciousness, and the Contributions of Irish American Women,” on Friday, September 20, 2019, at 4:30 p.m. in the Morris Inn Ballroom at the University of Notre Dame. 

McCarthy is associate professor of history at Central Michigan University and author of Respectability and Reform: Irish American Women’s Activism, 1880–1920 (Syracuse University Press, 2018).

In 1978, the Ancient Order of Hibernians and Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians undertook a campaign to establish an endowment at Notre Dame for illuminating Irish-American history. Thanks to this support, the Cushwa Center since then has administered a variety of programs promoting the study of the Irish experience in Ireland and America, including the annual Hibernian Lecture.

"Arts for Healing and Reconciliation in Colombia: A Research Proposal Toward the Analysis of Truth-Seeking Methods and Processes"
By virtue of the 2016 Peace Agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC-EP, a truth commission was created in Colombia. Charged with contributing to a peaceful coexistence, the commission is working toward the publication of a final report to provide contextual accounts of the violence during the decades-long armed conflict and offer recommendations for building sustainable peace. Since the signing of the accords, however, more than 700 social and human rights’ leaders have been assassinated, more than 40 former guerrillas have been murdered, and public policy obstacles for implementation of the accord continues to grow.

Student Spotlight
Gender Studies is about understanding people, both yourself and others. Gender Studies teaches us how human identities are shaped by gender and related traits such as sex, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, religion and nationality. Through Gender Studies, we not only strive to understand people better, but because of this endeavor, we hopefully become more understanding people.
