Questions about President Obama’s St Patrick’s Day 2012 speech

In case you haven’t noticed, I run another blog for an Introduction to Sociology course for first year students here at Trinity College Dublin.  I try to post something 4 or 5 times per week to keep students engaged in current events and other academic insights.

My latest post explores the question ‘Can President Obama be Irish?’

This question ‘what does it mean to be Irish?’ has perplexed us (myself and the students) for a few weeks now.

To read my notes, ponder my questions, and actually watch President Obama’s speech itself, please click on Intro to Sociology.
