Patrick Griffin is the Madden-Hennebry Professor of History and director of the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame. His work explores the intersection of colonial American and early modern Irish and British history, including the movement of peoples and cultures across the Atlantic Ocean, the process of adaptation, colonization and violence, revolution and rebellion, and the ways Ireland, Britain, and America were linked, and differed, during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. He is the author of The People with No Name: Ireland’s Ulster Scots, America’s Scots Irish, and the Creation of a British Atlantic World, 1689–1764 (2001), American Leviathan: Empire, Nation, and Revolutionary Frontier (2007), and America’s Revolution (2012). His most recent book is entitled The Townshend Moment: The Making of Empire and Revolution in the Eighteenth Century, and he is now working on a study of the Age of Revolution.
