Dr. O'Neill Publishes New Book

Dr. O'Neiil's new book 'Famine Irish and the American Racial State' is now available. This interdisciplinary, transnational work uses an array of cultural artifacts, including novels, plays, songs, cartoons, government reports, laws, sermons, memoirs, and how-to manuals, to make its case. It challenges the claim that the Irish "became white" in the United States, showing that the claim fails to take into full account the legal position of the Irish in the nineteenth-century US state – a state that deemed the Irish "white" upon arrival.

Willson Center Distinguished Lecture by Professor Haun Saussy

Dr. Haun Saussy, Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Chicago, and former president of the American Comparative Literature Association, presented new research at the University of Georgia on September 15. The event was organized by Dr. Yuanfei Wang from Comparative Literature and was supported through the Willson Center's Distinguished Lecture Series support. Entitled “The Only Game in Town: Early Buddhist Translations Into Chinese,” Saussy's talk examined the earliest translations of Buddhist doctrine into Chinese, apparently by teams of translators working with secondhand sources. These texts show attention to the contexts of reception— in other words the cultural situation into which Buddhist ideas would be integrated.
