'Irish in Film' take screen at Fairfield University
When the Irish Studies department at Fairfield University wanted to do something special to promote their program, they decided to start a movie series that would attract students, faculty and the nearby community to learn about different perspectives of Ireland... "As professors in the Irish Studies program, we thought a lot about a means of getting a greater presence for the Irish studies on campus and as a community outreach, so we began the film series," says Bill Abbott, a professor in the department.
