How do we give a future to the past? How do we perform acts of double remembrance which honor both sides of the story-- spoken and unspoken, acknowledged and forgotten? One hundred years after the Easter Rising, Twinsome Minds explores the complexities of commemoration against the backdrops of the famine and 1916.

Using word and image artist Sheila Gallagher and philosopher Richard Kearney retrieve some neglected micro-narratives of Irish historical trauma to illustrate how memory occurs at the cross section of story and history. In an inventive combination of archival imagery, historical records and narrative imagination, they mine the past for potential futures in a process of healing and recovery.

Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University publishes Famine Folios, a unique resource for students, scholars and researchers, as well as general readers, covering many aspects of the Famine in Ireland from 1845–1852 – the worst demographic catastrophe of nineteenth-century Europe. The essays are interdisciplinary in nature, and make available new research in Famine studies by internationally established scholars in history, art history, cultural theory, philosophy, media history, political economy, literature and music.
