Informed Neighbor brings together organizations, local officials, and community members at NYU for meetings to provide information on projects and initiatives at the University, including updates on construction, upcoming events, sustainability, and other happenings that are pertinent for the community.

This month, the series welcomes Glucksman Ireland House NYU Professor Miriam Nyhan, who will speak on the exhibition The Fifth Province: County Societies in Irish America, which recently opened at NYU’s Open House space.

Dr. Miriam Nyhan will present on the importance of county societies in forging Irish American identity, shaping the immigrant experience and how America forms an integral part of Ireland’s Fifth Province, the Irish diaspora. The presentation will be introduced by Dr. Marion R. Casey, co-curator of the exhibit. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask the presenter questions and will also be able to browse the exhibit at the Open House.

This special event is made possible by a collaboration of NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House and Office of Government and Community Affairs.
