“Making Sense of the Molly Maguires: Irish Immigrants and Class Conflict in the United States”

Kevin Kenny, New York University

 

Kevin Kenny, Professor of History & Glucksman Professor in Irish Studies at NYU, is one of the world’s leading historians of Irish emigration, American immigration and global migration. He is the author of Diaspora: A Very Short Introduction, which examines the origins, meanings, and utility of a central concept in the study of migration; Peaceable Kingdom Lost: The Paxton Boys and the Destruction of William Penn’s Holy Experiment, an inquiry into the encounter between Ulster colonists and Native Americans in the eighteenth century; The American Irish, a standard history of the field; and Making Sense of the Molly Maguires, which considers how traditions of Irish rural protest were translated into an American industrial setting. He served as contributing editor for Ireland and the British Empire, which launched The Oxford History of the British Empire Companion Series and he has published articles about Irish migration and the category of diaspora in such venues as Irish Economic and Social History, the Journal of American History, and the Journal of American Ethnic History.
