    Fulbright scholar for UCC’s Diaspora studies MA

    By Noreen Bowden | December 3, 2008

    A noted historian who has done important work on the Irish diaspora has been selected as a Fulbright Scholar and will lecture in spring 2009 at University College, Cork.

    William H. Mulligan, Jr. is professor of history at Murray State University. He will work with UCC to develop and promote their new master’s degree programme in Irish Diaspora Studies. He developed and taught one of the first university-level courses on the Irish Daspora in the US. His research has focused on the nature of Irish identity in the diaspora, and more specifically, migration from copper-mining areas in Ireland to the Michigan Copper Country from the mid-19th century.

    The Fullbright programme is America’s flagship international exchange programme, operating in more than 150 countries worldwide.
