May 2022 – Jane McGaughey and Giselle Gonzalez-Garcia presented some of their research on the GMM Project at the Canadian Association of Irish Studies annual conference (online this year, in person in 2023!) on May 31st. Jane focused on gendered and sexualised diagnoses at Rockwood and the PLA, while Giselle explored how the digital humanities have enriched how she can envision and interact with the project’s asylum patients.
March 2022 – Irish Heritage Month in Canada kicked off last week with a special event hosted by Ireland’s Ambassador to Canada, His Excellency Dr. Eamonn McKee. Jane McGaughey joined as one of the historians talking about important Irish figures in Canada’s past.
