At a Glance

Is St. Patrick’s Day about religious belief, of the politics of national identity or green beer? How much does a St. Patrick’s Day in New York, Dublin or Belfast have in common? Join Professor of Anthropology Dominic Bryan on St. Patrick’s Day to explore the complex and sometime surprising history of the global celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Examine some of the origins of St. Patrick’s Day; discuss the tension between its religious, national and carnivalesque aspects; and look at how events differ depending on the part of the world hosting them.
