Gender and Nationality in Nineteenth-Century Irish Writing

This project will investigate the interactions between representations of gender difference and of national difference in Irish writing of the nineteenth century, fiction as well as non-fiction. It will consider the relation between self-consciously 'peripheral' writing and that periphery's struggle with genre over the course of the nineteenth century.
