Representations of Irishness in the 21st Century: Boundaries Between Past & Present

AbstractThis panel explores representations of Irishness in the 21st Century. From the Belfast Agreement and the “end” of the Northern Ireland Troubles to the Republic’s referenda on divorce, abortion, and marriage equality, the past 25 years present a dynamic and changing society on the island. Recalling Clare Connolly’s introduction to Ireland and Postcolonial Theory, in which she writes of instability of the “boundaries between past and present [...] memory and history, national and international,” this panel examines Irishness in relation to shifting global, political, and cultural contexts as they manifest in texts from the present and recent past in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The high cost of a college education and the persistent worries about both immediate and future employment opportunities have resulted in students and their families doubting the value of the humanities, and all too often, the value of a college degree. These pervasive doubts contrast to the many reports and surveys of employers who stress their preferences for hiring graduates with the very traits the study of humanities imbues: creative thinking, team work, empathy, communication skills, and curiosity. Despite the number of closures of humanities programs and the disappearance of colleges dedicated to the liberal arts, one population of potential students for humanities programs continues to grow: prison inmates.

Puppets are a universal phenomenon that appears in all cultures. Varying in size from the miniscule to the
colossal, puppetry is of an enormous diversity: from rounded (the string puppet or the marionette, the
rod-puppet, the hand- or glove-puppet, the finger-puppet) to flat (the shadow-show, the toy or paper
theatre); from 'living' marionettes and bodies fastened to performers, to 'held' puppets (Japanese Bunraku
theatre), puppets come in all shapes and sizes. Performances involving puppets are no less variegated:
spanning art forms as diverse as folk theatre and élite entertainment, one only needs to recall eighteenthcentury
operas penned for puppets; Gordon Craig's non-naturalistic refashioning of the actor as a
