This collection explores popular culture in Ireland and Ireland in popular culture, from Fanfic to Orange Parades; from boybands to the Blessed Virgin Mary; from celebrity tourism to the Gaelic Athletic Association. The essays examine local and global Irishness, focusing on how gender, sexuality and race shape Irish 'postmodernity'.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The 'new Ireland' so often made the subject of political commentary and economic reports still wants for engaged critical commentary. Irish Postmodernisms and Popular Culture theorises Celtic Tiger Ireland in all its cultural complexity. A fresh, lively and challenging collection.' - Claire Connolly, Cardiff University

'This remarkable collection of essays robustly displays the exciting diversity of contemporary Irish studies' engagement with global popular culture. Interrogating gender, genre, race, space, and migration, this volume brilliantly reassesses the Irish academy's ideological and theoretical commitments.' - Professor Cheryl Herr, Department of English, University of Iowa
