Patrick Mullen Answers 3Qs

 

Associate professor Patrick Mullen, who is in Dublin leading a Dialogue of Civilization on Irish Film and Literature, answered “3Qs” for the Northeastern News about Ireland’s historic vote, on Friday, May 22nd, to legalize marriage irrespective of gender.  “The vote here seems to have become something much broader,” Mullen observes, “a richer embrace of human worth. Interestingly, there were not a spate of marriages that took center stage—instead it was about how enthusiastically the nation embraced all of its citizens.”
