What’s in a name? Irish ‘outrages’ and their multiple meanings: cases from County Cork 1835-1845
Mar 9 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

A CHAS Zoom Lecture: ‘What’s in a name? Irish ‘outrages’ and their multiple meanings: cases from County Cork 1835-1845’ by Dr. Jay Roszman
Agrarian violence was a feature in many parts of rural Ireland in the 18th and 19th centuries. By taking the law into their own hands, those involved put themselves in conflict with the authorities legally, politically and socially and the instances of such ‘outrages’ and how they were perceived and responded to is the topic of the lecture.
Dr. Jay Roszman is a native of Shelburne, Vermont, USA. He has contributed several articles to journals and his monograph ‘Outrage in the Age of Reform: Irish Agrarian Violence, Imperial Insecurity, and British Governing Policy 1830-1845’ is being published by Cambridge University Press in September 2022. He and his family moved to Cork in 2018 where he lectures in the School of History, UCC.
