  • Memory Ireland, Volume 2: Diaspora and Memory Practices By Oona Frawley In the second volume of a series that will ultimately include four, the authors consider Irish diasporic memory and memory practices While the Irish diaspora has become the subject of a wide range of scholarship, there has been little work focused on its relationship to memory The first half of the volume asks how diasporic memory functions in different places and times,In the second volume of a series that will ultimately include four, the authors consider Irish diasporic memory and memory practices While the Irish diaspora has become the subject of a wide range of scholarship, there has been little work focused on its relationship to memory The first half of the volume asks how diasporic memory functions in different places and times, and what forms it takes on As an island nation with a history of emigration, Ireland has developed a rich diasporic cultural memory, one that draws on multiple traditions and historiographies of both home and away Native traditions are not imported wholesale, but instead develop their own curious hybridity, reflecting the nature of emigrant memory that absorbs new ways of thinking about home How do immigrants remember their homeland How do descendants of immigrants remember a land they rarely visit How does diasporic memory pass through families, and how is it represented in cultural forms such as literature, festivals, and souvenirs In its second half, this volume shifts its attention to the concept of memory practices, ways of cultural remembering that result from and are shaped by particular cultural forms Many of these cultural forms embody memory materially through language, music, and photography and, because of their distinctive expressions of culture, give rise to distinctive memory practices Gathering the leading voices in Irish studies, this volume opens new pathways into the body of Irish cultural memory, demonstrating time and again the ways in which memory is supported by the negotiations of individuals within wider cultural contexts.Contributors include Aidan Arrowsmith, Hasia Diner, Joep Leerssen, Paul Muldoon, Nuala N Dhomhnaill
