Dr LeAnne Howe is collaborating with Irish poets Doireann Ní Ghríofa and Padraig Kirwan on both scholarly and poetic projects that celebrate the Choctaw gift to the Irish in 1847 during the Irish Potato Famine, a pair of projects that honors, as Kirwan writes, this act of " empathy and dialogue between culturally distinct communities." Learn more about these collaborations, and read new poetry by Dr. Howe and Doireann Ní Ghríofa, at the Irish Times.
