Irish Families Interactions
Saturday, April 18
Irish Families Interactions  (Lectures)
10:30 am
Briarwood Presbyterian Church Hall, 70 Beaconsfield Blvd, Beaconsfield
Research into Irish Families Interactions
Speaker: Dr. Jane McGaughey. Irish Studies, Concordia University
Dr. McGaughey will talk about her research project looking at Irish families’ interactions with the lunatic asylums of Upper and Lower Canada.  This was around the time of the Irish famine when many Irish men and women were incarcerated in the provincial asylums. Family relationships were a primary factor in how many people ended up in the ‘system’ and also how they were able to be released from the asylums. There are also ethical elements about this kind of cultural medical research.
