Ireland in the World : Comparative, Transnational, and Personal Perspectives Hardback
Part of the Routledge Studies in Modern History series
This international edited book collection of ten original contributions from established and emerging scholars explores aspects of Ireland's place in the world since the 1780s.
It imaginatively blends comparative, transnational, and personal perspectives to examine migration in a range of diverse geographical locations including Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Argentina, Jamaica, and the British Empire more broadly.
Deploying diverse sources including letters, interviews, press reports, convict records, and social media, contributors canvas important themes such as slavery, convicts, policing, landlordism, print culture, loyalism, nationalism, sectarianism, politics, and electronic media.
A range of perspectives including Catholic and Protestant, men and women, convicts and settlers are included, and the volume is accompanied by a range of striking images.
