The New York Times Publishes FDU MFA Faculty Rosie Schaap in Travel
“Just how well known the fate of Roger Casement is is debatable — and this, I discovered during three weeks in Ireland spent on his trail this year, is true of nearly all things Casement. Perhaps more than any other figure associated with the 1916 Easter Rising (there are events all over Ireland celebrating its centenary this year), Casement endures after death in a swirl of controversy,” writes Fairleigh Dickinson University MFA faculty member Rosie Schaap in her piece, “In Ireland, Chasing the Ghost of the Rebel Roger Casement” in The New York Times Travel section.
