Institute of Irish Studies

From plantations to Grattan's parliament, poitín distillers to the IMF bailout, the Irish have always had a fraught relationship with institutions of political, social and religious power. This raises questions surrounding the legitimacy of performative and systemic aspects of Irishness, which has been and continues to be in flux both north and south of the border.

Maternal Patriotism: Motherhood and Citizenship in 19th-Century American Women's Writing

This is a call for a proposed panel for the Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW) Triennial Conference.

In Women of the Republic, Linda Kerber documents the origins of an American ideology of womanhood and citizenship and describes the rise of what she aptly calls republican motherhood. Kerber argues that in the days after the American Revolution "a consensus developed around the idea that a mother committed to the service of her family and to the state, might serve a political purpose."

In The Plague of Fantasies, Slavoj Žižek describes Lacan's readings of classical, literary, and philosophical texts as "a case of violent appropriation…displacing the work from its proper hermeneutic context." And yet, he argues, "this very violent gesture brings about a breathtaking 'effect of truth'" and "a shattering new insight."
