Identity Parades investigates of the role and importance of identity politics in modern Northern Irish society. Through a discussion of the kinds of texts that are often overlooked in analyses of culture in the North - such as film, biography, popular fiction and travel writing - the book charts the rise of identity as an increasingly popular way of defining individual and communal affiliation and considers its importance within Northern Irish political discourse as a whole. In this, Identity Parades identifies not only the possibilities but also the limits of `identitarian' thinking and describes the ways in which identity positions in the North can become troubled, fossilised and self-parodic.
