Will the World Break Your Heart? A Historical Analysis of the Dimensions and Consequences of Irish-American Assimilation

To prepare for publication manuscripts of grantee's doctoral dissertation, a study of Irish-Americans from the 1840s to the present. The paper draws on a variety of published sources--autobiographies, biographies, histories, scholarly and popular works in the natural and social sciences, novels, plays and films--to show that the Irish have remained cultural strangers in the U.S., and that while their ethnicity has been repressed, it has not been obliterated.
