WAM October 22-23 Dr. Bronwen Walter
Doctor Bronwen Walter from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, England, visits Memorial University this week and wants to meet with you to enter into a dialogue on questions about the recognition of Irish heritage in Newfoundland. This is all part of a larger project Dr. Walter is working on, exploring the issue of Irish heritage in parts of the world where people experience major connections with Ireland. She is looking at England, New Zealand, and Newfoundland.
Her own research to date has focussed on Britain, and especially England, where she has been involved in both academic projects and policy-related areas (especially connected to emigrant welfare needs and anti-Irish discrimination).
Dr. Bronwen Walter joins me this morning in the studio. Welcome to the Weekend Arts Magazine.
