Menace of the Irish Race to Our Scottish Nationality
Tom Devine professor, Irish & Scottish studies, U of Aberdeen
Ruth-Ann Harris professor, history & Irish studies, BC
Tom Devine, OBE, a professor of Irish and Scottish studies at the University of Aberdeen, explicates a tract submitted in the 1920s to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland (that country's influential government agency of Presbyterianism), a document that epitomized Scottish fears that Irish Catholic immigrants were undermining the purity of the Scottish race. He explores the roots of these fears by examining the patterns of that immigration and its historical context. Devine is introduced by Ruth-Ann Harris, adjunct professor of history and Irish studies at Boston College.
