About this title


Connections between migration and artistic activity, including the migrants' own use of the arts, shape this work, the media studies volume of the series. These are the arts without walls, the portable arts, the social arts, the arts of the intellect, the word and of music. A key theme is the nature of narratives, the stories we create and live by. The text includes chapters on early Irish intellectual history, 17th and 18th century drama and working-class autobiography which show alternative narratives in the making. In addition, chapters on Thoreau, on jokes and on American cinema show the Irish entering narratives shaped by others. A study of fenian historiography exposes the creativity that goes into the writing of history, whilst a chapter on Thomas Moore shows Australia's poets negotiating their Irish heritage.
