Abstract

Reclaiming Gender is a pioneering work that advances Irish studies by stimulating interdisciplinary dialogue between general Irish studies and gender studies. The famine, Republicanism, queer studies, and emigration to England are all examined through a gendered lens, as gender is the crucial analytical thread that ties local action to the overall development of the world economy. By mainstreaming gender into the state, political economy, culture, and the Diaspora, this volume provides a feminist revision of Irish studies which challenges masculinized modes of cognition to rethink reality in gendered terms. The book provides a helpful introduction to major theoretical concerns as well as a fascinating revision of the modern Irish and diasporic experience.
