The Leaving of Ireland: Migration and Belonging in Irish Literature and Film
Karlstad University, Faculty of Economic Sciences, Communication and IT, Department of Media and Communication Studies.
2015 (English)Collection (editor) (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The Leaving of Ireland brings together an international group of scholars to reflect critically on the unfolding nature of the experience of Irish cultural identity at a time when Ireland is struggling to adjust to the shattering impacts of globalization and religious scandals of recent decades. Looking back over the last two centuries, the volume considers a range of literary and filmic works that have sought to articulate something of this experience and its multiple locations. The essays revisit crucial constituents of Irish history and self-perception at the micro-level, exploring the representation of individual experiences of migration and identification and the definition of a sense of belonging. They also examine these issues at the macro-level, looking at larger politico-historical transformations, national affiliations and changed social and geographical landscapes. The book is organized around key themes including history, mobility, memory and place and addresses the works of a wide range of authors, including Emily Lawless, Frank McCourt, Sinead Morrissey, Paul Muldoon, Joseph O'Connor, J.M. Synge and W.B. Yeats.
