The Intellectual Life of Irish Immigrants inthe 19th Century United States

Project will attempt to identify Irish intellectual cultural brokers in all sections of the U.S. during the 19th century, to examine their ideas, and to gauge the effectiveness of those ideas in easing the eventual accommodation between the Irish and the larger society. Will refute the belief that the Irish in America during the 19th century were rural peasants, largely unskilled and unschooled.
