The Great Hunger (ITW-101)

This course will examine through storytelling the causes and conditions of the potato famine in Ireland in the 1840s, which left one million people dead from starvation and fever and another million forced into emigration in "coffin" ships, many going to America. What caused the blight? What economic, social, political, and moral defects of the era contributed to the devastation? Why was relief delayed? What parallels to "the Great Hunger" can be seen in different times and in different places?
