Marion R. Casey

Marion R. Casey trained as an historian with David N. Doyle at University College Dublin and with David M. Reimers at New York University. Her goals are to use the longevity of Irish emigration to illuminate the evolving ethnic and racial experience in the United States; to explore diaspora and transnationalism from Irish and American perspectives; and to teach students how to think historically. In 1997 she established the Archives of Irish America in New York University’s Bobst Library and in 1999 she was named a Centennial Historian of the City of New York.
