Ireland's Great Hunger Institute

Through a program of lectures, conferences, courses, and publications, Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute offers a deeper understanding of the causes and consequences of the Irish Famine, also known as “An Gorta Mor.”  The Institute also fosters an appreciation for Irish culture and history.

To encourage original scholarship and meaningful engagement, the institute develops and makes available the Great Hunger Collection, a unique array of primary, secondary and cultural sources, to students and scholars.

The Institute also oversees the newly introduced Irish Studies Minor. Through this program, internships and study visits are available in Ireland. Quinnipiac University has partnerships with Cork University, Maynooth University and Trinity College in Dublin. The Institute has a partnership with Strokestown House in County Roscommon, the home of the National Famine Museum.
