Title
Famine Diaries: Narratives About Emigration from Ireland to Lower Canada and Quebec, 1832-1853
Abstract
A study of how the principles of Irish nationalism, particularly those of the Young Ireland movement with its avowed antipathy towards the British Crown, was disseminated and modulated within a Canadian setting. The author also studied how the 1832 cholera epidemic (which led to the establishment of the quarantine station at Grosse Île), the Rebellion of 1837 and the Irish famine and mass emigration of the 1840s determined the Irish Canadian national identity.
