We begin the afternoon with a talk by Malcolm Sen, Assistant Professor of English, UMass Amherst--Irish Literature at the End of the World: Literary Approaches to Climate Change.

Following his talk, enjoy traditional Irish music by local band The Lindsays, and dancing by the BSU Irish Steppers! Mike Sandy, Director of the Study Abroad office will be on hand to talk about study abroad opportunities, and Dr. Ellen Scheible, Coordinator of the Irish Studies Program, will answer your questions about the Irish Studies Minor.

Throughout the event, you are welcome to partake of a traditional Irish Afternoon Tea, with sandwiches, delicious appetizers and sweets, and an array of fine teas.

Malcolm Sen’s research interests include Irish Studies, South Asian literatures and cultures, and the environmental humanities. Currently, he is especially interested in the role of narrative in our understanding of, and responses to, climate change. He is the editor of the podcast series Irish Studies and the Environmental Humanities.

Irish Cultural Heritage Day is open to everyone in the BSU community and the public.
