Overview

For centuries, St Patrick’s Day has been an occasion for celebrating Irishness all over the world. In this presentation, richly illustrated by audiovisual materials, Mick will look at how the day has accumulated different sets of symbolic meanings over time in the homeland and among the global Irish diaspora, from great American cities—including Savannah, Georgia; Butte, Montana; and New York, New York—to the Caribbean island of Montserrat. These meanings emerge in institutions such as parades and other public festive occasions, and in the arts, particularly music and dance.
