Ireland in / and Europe - Cross-Currents and Exchanges


Irish Studies in Europe is the title of a new series of publications in Irish Studies. The projected thematic and methodological range of this series goes well beyond literary studies to include aspects of cultural studies in the broadest sense. The focus is, of course, on the island of Ireland (the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland) as well as the Irish diaspora in all aspects of society, history, culture, literature, the arts, and the media.
