Nordic Irish Studies Special Issue

In recent years, increasing critical attention has been paid to the role of media in shaping experience and cultural memory. While the engagement with the past has been redefined as performative, rather than reproductive, the importance of different media for preserving, retrieving, forming, and producing narratives of nationhood has been emphasised. The special issue of Nordic Irish Studies on Cultural Memory and the Remediation of Narratives of Irishness is devoted to the significance of the mediation and remediation of traditional narratives of the nation for negotiating a sense of Irishness.

University of Cambridge

The eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries saw the eruption of violent conflict in the French and American revolutions, an industrial revolution sweep Britain, the prolonged hostilities of the Napoleonic wars, as well as the economic catastrophe of the South Sea Bubble. The period was also a time of upheaval in literature: philosophically, stylistically, generically and in the changing nature of the literary marketplace. Recent scholarship has continued to highlight the importance of political and intellectual debate to British literary output, as well as the battles taking place within literary circles and texts themselves.
