 My research focuses on Irish immigration to North America and the ways in which immigrants articulate multiple identities and how those identities intersect with larger historical processes like nationalism, class and gender. I specifically examine the colonial and revolutionary periods when Quebec was a locus for the migration flow from Great Britain to Canada and the American colonies. A refuge for Scots-Irish immigrants and revolutionary loyalists, the Eastern Townships of Quebec on the U.S./Canada border, fostered the development of a unique Irish ethnic identity.
