Biography

BREANDÁN MAC SUIBHNE is a historian of society and culture in modern Ireland (PhD, Carnegie Mellon, 1999). His The End of Outrage: Post-Famine Adjustment in Rural Ireland (Oxford University Press, 2017) was Irish Times Irish Non-Fiction Book of the Year in 2017. The Royal Irish Academy awarded it the inaugural Michel Déon Biennial Prize for Nonfiction and it received the Donnelly Prize for Books in History and Social Science from the American Conference for Irish Studies. His other publications include two major annotated editions, viz. John Gamble’s Society and Manners in Early Nineteenth-Century Ireland (Field Day, 2011), a compendium of the travel-writing of a hard-living doctor, and, with David Dickson, Hugh Dorian’s The Outer Edge of Ulster: A Memoir of Social Life in Mid-Nineteenth-Century Donegal (Lilliput, 2000, 2001; University of Notre Dame Press, 2001), the most extensive lower-class account of Ireland’s Great Famine. Mac Suibhne was a founding editor, with critic Seamus Deane, of Field Day Review (2005–), a journal of political and literary culture, and, with Deane, he edited two book series, Field Files and Field Day Editions.                      

Mac Suibhne is currently at work on two book projects. One is a study of Brian Friel’s mother’s people in south-west Donegal and the other concerns
what the Irish poor did to and for each other “in the time of the Famine”. This item gives a sense of the Friel project: https://www.irishtimes.com/culture/books/the-inspiration-for-fr-jack-the-wee-donegal-priest-known-to-millions-1.4230588 
And the issues and approach of the Famine book may be discerned here: https://www.irishtimes.com/culture/books/disturbing-remains-a-story-of-black-47-1.3365683

Mac Suibhne is also working, with Daniel Carey of the Moore Institute for the Humanities in NUI Galway, to develop an online database that will facilitate access to Kerby A. Miller’s vast collection of transcripts of Irish emigrant letters, and, with David Dickson, he is a leading an international team that is editing the correspondence of the Moore family of Derry and Baltimore, Maryland, c. 1795–1845, for the Irish Manuscript Commission.
