  • Introduction: Ireland and the Contemporary
    • Abstract: Is it possible for scholars to study the contemporary' There are indications that the task is beyond viability, if we take the contemporary to encompass events, writings, artistic expressions, and cultural practices no more than a few years removed from the present. Consider, for example, the sheer volume of source material that scholars must contend with. Despite lamentations for the decline in book publishing, the number of titles produced each year as measured by annual ISBNs issued has ballooned by nearly 500 percent in a decade. Literature is one of the largest categories of publishing genres, with between 43,000 and 53,000 ISBNs assigned annually by the bibliographic provider Bowker in 2005–13 as part of an ... Read More

  • History Repeating Itself: Men, Masculinities, and "His Story" in the
           Fiction of Micheál Ó Conghaile
    • Abstract: The status of Irish as a minority language and recognition of its broken and often traumatized past give it a distinctly alive, almost virtual sense of reality in contemporary Irish-language letters. This recognition prompts the feeling that, in language as in life, in the words of the poem by Seamus Heaney, "Anything can happen, the tallest things … / Be overturned, those in high places daunted, / Those overlooked regarded" (10). Yet despite its minority status the Irish language is far from overlooked: Irish, or an Ghaeilge, is a feminine noun, and thus it should come as no surprise that in contemporary Irish criticism the female experience and the feminine—in terms of both writers and characters—have been the ...

  • The Re-education of Ross O'Carroll-Kelly
    • Abstract: In december 2011 the results of an online poll to select Ireland's favorite novel were announced by the Irish bookstore chain Eason & Son. The clear winner, fending off international competition from the likes of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, Joseph Heller's Catch-22, and J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, as well as the writings of Irish rivals such as Emma Donoghue, John Boyne, and Cecelia Ahern (not to mention Wilde, Joyce, Beckett, and O'Brien), was Paul Howard's 2010 novel The Oh My God Delusion, the tenth entry in the wildly popular Ross O'Carroll-Kelly series.1 The series, which follows the adventures of a young upper-middle-class Dublin socialite whose initials evoke the nickname of a well-known ...

  • The Railroad Reverie in Contemporary Irish Poetry*
    • Abstract: I closed my eyes on a white horse pulling a plough In Poland …Alone in the compartment I have spent three of the sweetest hours I have experienced in a long time. … I was alone in my carriage. …the wheels rolled on indefatigably, with a uniform noise like that of a prolonged roaring note played on an organ. All mundane and social ideas faded from my mind. No longer did I see anything but the sun and the countryside, in bloom, smiling, all green and with a greenness so various and illuminated by that gentle rain of warm beams that caressed it.When Wolfgang Schivelbusch, in his cultural study The Railway Journey, quotes the passage about Hippolyte Taine's experience "alone in my carriage" on a train, he finds it ...

  • Political Transformation in Ireland: Boom, Bust, and Beyond*
    • Abstract: Ireland's journey from the booming Celtic Tiger economy to a poor man of Europe was based primarily on a property boom and bust that made international headlines from 2008 to 2011. The country's financial collapse, while prompted by unique Irish causes and circumstances, was rooted in the global financial crisis that especially affected several European states and was linked to the U.S. financial crisis and contraction. Ireland had experienced a period of rapid economic growth in the late 1990s, based on impressive productivity gains from investment in information technology, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices. In the early 2000s speculation in housing led to a property bubble or a "confidence trap." Martin Wolf ... Read More

  • The Parts: Dublin Suburbs and Situating the Contemporary
    • Abstract: Any discussion of the contemporary runs the risk of privileging time over space. The notion of the contemporary can suggest the "now" as what comes after what has gone before—a matter of sequence and historical emergence. In trying to discern the lineaments of the contemporary, it is as important to establish the spatial context of present-day shared experiences and beliefs with others as it is to trace the changing patterns of such beliefs and experiences over time. In this respect suburbs are a crucial part of this context in Ireland, as they are where the majority of Irish residents live owing to the historically small size and relative underdevelopment of Irish urban centers (Fraser). In this essay we will ... Read More

  • "This Place … So Vividly, So Violently, So Murderously Alive":
           Emigration in John Banville's Benjamin Black Novels
    • Abstract: The year 2005 may have been John Banville's annus mirabilis. By early March, Banville had finished his fourteenth novel The Sea, which went on to secure for its author the much-coveted Booker Prize, and he had started writing The Infinities. At that point Banville's reputation was mainly that of a "writer's writer": His novels had often been characterized as difficult and demanding, while he had been praised as a supreme "stylist" whose bookcases must be brimming with volumes of Joyce and Nabokov. As Mike Murphy noted on the RTÉ Arts Show, "the Banville reader is an intellectual, probably an academic, woolly gansey with double-strength spectacles" (qtd. in Kenny 2). After the "early novels"—Nightspawn (1971) ... Read More

  • Contemporary Irish Film: From the National to the Transnational
    • Abstract: An invitation to consider contemporary Irish cinema suggests a number of potential frames and approaches. The most obvious might be the identification of dominant genres, themes, or practices of representation that reflect something about Ireland and the Irish a century after the 1916 Rising. Within a specific understanding of the role and function of a late-flowering national cinema, auteur and cultural-studies approaches have dominated readings of Irish film, which has frequently been called upon as a means of critiquing or negotiating key social structures such as the Catholic church, family, sexuality, and gender. Yet as our earlier attempt to categorize the output of the Irish Film Board (IFB) between 1993 and ... Read More

  • Re-reading the Ryan Report: Witnessing via and Close and Distant Reading
    • Abstract: In the days following the publication of the Final Report of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse (2009), also known as the Ryan Report, there was widespread national and international public reaction to the conclusions of the report that over the course of nine decades abuse had been severe and systemic in the Irish residential-institution system for children run by the religious congregations of the Catholic church.1 In the New York Times John Banville reflected:Everyone knew. When the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse issued its report this week after nine years of investigation, the Irish collectively threw up their hands in horror, asking that question we have heard so often from so many parts of ...

  • "Reversing the Cinematograph'": Yeats, Autobiography, and the Medium
           of Film*
    • Abstract: "I have spent all of my life in clearing out of poetry every phrase written for the eye, and bringing all back to syntax that is for the ear alone."1"I think Yeats has done what he hoped might happen. He hoped that his words might become current. He actually wanted his songs to be overheard like Dante's."2This essay analyzes the different ways in which the work and life of W. B. Yeats (hereafter WBY) have been treated on film. It does so by reflecting on a selection of moving-image material from newsreel and amateur footage, through to the much celebrated documentary "tribute" films, and on to the most recent treatments for television, online, and art/installation exhibitions, some of which constituted Yeats 2015 ...

  • Writing the Contemporary Encounter in the Museum: Dorothy Cross and Trove
           at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, 2014–15*
    • Abstract: In his exploration of contemporaneity and its discontents Pedro Erber argues that "in brief, to be contemporary is to (in a subtle, particular manner) refuse contemporaneity." Drawing on the theories of Marc Augé, Giorgio Agamben, and others, Erber parses contemporaneity in the context of an assumed shared globalized condition. The different registers of contemporaneity discussed by Erber include the condition of "coevalness" (after Johannes Fabian), based on the "dialogic interaction between human beings" and on "time shared though action, interaction, and communication" rather than on a "mere chronological relationship." Complicating this position, however, is the concept of "allochronism"—referring to the ... Read More

  • Irish History Online and in Real Time: Century Ireland and the Decade of

    • Abstract: In 2013 the American Academy of Arts and Sciences Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences offered the following view on the potential for academic engagement with the digital realm: "Online resources offer unprecedented opportunities for scholars to frame topics of public interest, to participate in a wider community of public intellectuals, and to reach general audiences. The digital world offers vast new possibilities, not only for delivering instruction but also for facilitating research and for making the past and future possibilities come alive to students of all ages."1 While there is little to challenge in the view that access to online audiences offers scholars significant openings for presenting ...

  • Come Here to Me! Blogging the Stories of Dublin in the Digital Age
    • Abstract: In a 2012 lecture on the importance of local history Dr. Jonathan Healey quipped, "I don't think it is too much to say that—up to a point—when you put the word 'local' in the title of something, it gives it a bad name. It conjures up images of parochialism, obscurity, and irrelevance. A 'local celebrity' is inevitably viewed as somewhat laughable; local news always less interesting than national."1 If local history may once have been viewed as a hobby of parochialists, times have certainly changed. Indeed, Healey himself lectures on social and local history at the prestigious Oxford University, indicative of the academic acceptance of local history as a field of study. There is today a belief that localized studies ... Read More

  • Inspiring Ireland: Building Digital History, Making Shared Memory
    • Abstract: Speaking to the challenges that faced historians in commemorating the Irish revolutionary years, Professor Roy Foster's 2015 lecture in honor of Edmund Burke noted that a more complex understanding of history is inextricably bound up with the shifting nature of human memory.1 In developing his theme, Foster quoted memory-studies theorist Pierre Nora, in whose opinionmemory is life, borne by living societies founded in its name. It remains in permanent evolution, open to dialect of remembering and forgetting. History, on the other hand, is the reconstruction, always problematic and incomplete, of what is no longer. Memory is a perpetually actual phenomenon, a bond tying us to the eternal present.2The interplay ... Read More

  • Irish Poetry Publishing Online
    • Abstract: Jay David Bolter declared the emergence of computer technology and the World Wide Web at the start of the millennium to be a herald of what was termed the "late age of print." Arguing that tensions between digital and print conventions irrevocably destabilize the traditional understanding of the constitution of a book (3), Bolter concluded that the development of digital technologies facilitates the formation of alternative modes of literary composition, dissemination, and consumption. These evolutions are most often considered to be the foundations of born-digital electronic literature, that which "emerges through a series of translations across machine codes, platforms, and networks; its resulting onscreen ...

  • Pitch & Putt: The VIDA Survey of Gender Parity in Literary Periodicals
    • Abstract: In 2009 a seemingly unassuming project launched that has had an inordinate impact on the profile of women writers in literary publishing. The VIDA survey was established in New York by the poet Amy King and a number of colleagues with the object of examining the figures for women's inclusion in prominent literary periodicals. The group of writers painstakingly gathered statistics on the gender of individuals featured in nearly forty literary journals and well-respected periodicals. The result was a breakdown of gender divides across genres, reviewers, books reviewed, and journalistic bylines. What ensued was a vivid assessment of the publishing world that served as a klaxon-call signaling the inequity existing for ... Read More
