Abstract

The A. situates this story of human deprivation and suffering within the context of an evolving colonial biopolitics aimed at regenerating Irish society. Building on the perspectives of M. Foucault, he argues that the Great Famine has been shaped by a regulatory order willing to exploit catastrophe to further the aims of population reform. There was a growing perception that agricultural rationalization, fiscal restructuring and population clearances were necessary to ameliorate and improve Irish society
