​About these books
This major new interdisciplinary series of original works offers studies on the different traditions and multiple forms of writing and cultural production in Ireland and Northern Ireland, through to the present day.
The series will publish fresh, innovative work on Irish literary, filmic and cultural studies. Authors are encouraged to engage with a diversity of theoretical approaches (i.e. literary theory, cultural studies, media and film studies, sociology, historiography, political science, feminism, or multiculturalism).
Studies will focus on, but not be confined to, the following:
- The Anglo-Irish literary tradition; Cultural nationalism; the Gaelic Revival; the modern Irish Literary Revival;
- Irish mythological writing; exoticism and popular romance;
- Contemporary Irish writing in English and Irish: fiction – including the short story - drama, and poetry;
- Cultural productions by the Irish diaspora;
- Socio-cultural transformations in Post-Celtic Tiger Ireland of key aspects of Irish national identity (politics, nationality, ethnicity, religion);
- Minority voices in art, cinema and literature;
- Alternative cultures; marginalised histories and narratives; strategies of resilience;

The series publishes monographs, comparative studies, interdisciplinary projects, conference proceedings, and edited books. The first four titles in the series will be published in the autumn/winter of 2019/20
