About this book

Geofeminism in Irish and Diasporic Culture: Intimate Cartographies demonstrates the ways in which contemporary feminist Irish and diasporic authors, such as Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill and Tana French, cross borders literally (in terms of location), ideologically (in terms of syncretive politics and faiths), figuratively (in terms of conventions and canonicity), and linguistically to develop an epistemological “Fifth Space” of cultural actualization beyond borders.  This book contextualizes their work with regard to events in Irish and diasporic history and considers these authors in relation to other more established counterparts such as W.B. Yeats, P.H. Pearse, James Joyce, and Mairtín Ó Cadhain. Exploring the intersections of postcolonial cultural geography, transnational feminisms, and various theologies, Christin M. Mulligan engages with media from  the ninth century to present day and considers how these writer-cartographers reshape Ireland both as real landscape and fantasy island, traversed in order to negotiate place in terms of terrain and subjectivity both within and outside of history in the realm of desire.

Reviews

Geofeminism in Irish and Diasporic Culture: Intimate Cartographies is a welcome addition to the field of Irish and Diasporic Studies. The publication offers an original contribution with special emphasis on the role of space, place, body and desire in a contemporary and historical context. Covering a considerable body of texts and archival material, the study skillfully analyses a collection of texts that complement each other in a creative and productive way.” (Irene Gilsenan Nordin, Professor Emerita, Dalarna University, Sweden)
