"Landlords and Tenants: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"

National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park House, County Roscommon, Ireland.

The Great Hunger of 1845 to 1852 has cast a long shadow over the subsequent history of Ireland and its diaspora. Since 1995, there has been a renewed interest in studying this event, by scholars, students, archeologists, artists, musicians, folklorists etc.  This interest shows no sign of abating. New research, methodologies and approaches have greatly added to our understanding of the causes, impact and legacies of this tragedy.

The language debate between Ngugi wa Thiong’o and Chinua Achebe has long defined the discourse about language use in African literature. Achebe’s argument that the writer can “Africanize” the English he or she is using (by infusing words, phrases, idioms, songs, proverbs, stories, dialogue, etc. into the writing) is very compelling because it offers writers a practical means of reaching a wider audience and it ensures African literature a prominent space in the global literary landscape.

The Politics and Opacities of Grievability Abstract: The question of who constitutes the properly “grievable” subject has never been more important. With the racially and ethnically motivated attacks at the Christchurch Mosque in New Zealand and bombings in Sri Lanka, worldwide refugee crises, along with the #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo movements in the United States, the global politics of violence is increasingly visible and an important area of intervention.
