Description

As an Irish Studies organization, ASIMS is particularly interested in exploring the idea of unconscious bias. Issues of coloniality and “racial” categorization have played enormous roles in Irish history, and false equivalencies are often drawn between the struggles of Irish-Americans and people of color in the modern world. This workshop offers an opportunity for those engaged in Irish medieval studies to consider these vital issues. Maggie M. Williams

This workshop will be limited to 15-20 participants.
