Dr. McEvoy’s Book Reviewed by Brazilian Publication

Dr. Gabriela McEvoy’s recent book, La Experiencia Invisible: Immigrantes Irlandeses en el Perú (The Invisible Experience: Irish Immigrants in Peru), was reviewed by José Manuel Carrasco-Weston, a research assistant at the Research Center of the Universidad del Pacífico (Lima, Peru), for ABEI Journal, a Brazilian publication. Carrasco-Weston noted that McEvoy, chair of languages and associate professor of Spanish, wrote a book that is a “groundbreaking study on the Irish immigration in Peru,” and that it fills a “historical void” in the field.
