Richard White: Reflections on Remembering Ahanagran

Twenty years after the publication of Remembering Ahanagran: A History of Stories, renowned historian Richard White visited Glucksman Ireland House to reflect on the impact of the book and on the intersections of his ethnic backgrounds (Irish and Jewish) that shaped it.

Richard White is an historian of the United States at Stanford University specializing in the American West, the history of capitalism, environmental history, history and memory, and Native American history. His work has occasionally spilled over into Mexico, Canada, France, Australia and Ireland.

He is a MacArthur Fellow and a recipient of the Mellon Distinguished Professor Award. His work has won numerous academic prizes, and he has twice been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
