'The Irish in Argentina: Linguistic Diasporas, Narrative and Performance'

Wednesday, 27 September 2017, 6:30 – 7:30pm

'The Irish in Argentina: Linguistic Diasporas, Narrative and Performance'

Book launch of Sarah O' Brien
Based on conversations recorded by Sarah O'Brien (School of Linguistics, Speech and Communications Sciences) with Irish descendants in Argentina, this book explores a linguistically unique community that has to date received little attention by scholars of the Irish Diaspora . Introduced by Professor Kerby Miller, the book launch on Wednesday 27th September at 6.30 p.m. offers a point of entry into the cultural context of contemporary Irish-Argentina and provokes discussion on the role of oral narrative in illuminating our understanding of the recent past.
