Reviews

“[Rush] focuses on a very interesting and unusual area (Northern Ireland), one in which community arts can play a particularly rich, complex series of roles, which she draws out and then dissects skillfully.” • Jeremy MacClancy, Oxford Brookes University

“I strongly recommend this book … It is a joy to read.” • Raphaela Henze, Heilbronn University

Description

This book presents a nuanced view of Northern Ireland, a place at once deeply mired in its past and seeking to forge a new future for itself as a ‘post-post-conflict’ place within the context of a changing United Kingdom, a disintegrating Europe, and a globalized world. This is a Northern Ireland that is conflicted, segregated, and marginalized within modern Europe, but also hopeful and forward looking, seeking to articulate for itself a new place in the contemporary world.

Kayla Rush is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow in the School of Theology, Philosophy, and Music at Dublin City University. She received her PhD in Social Anthropology from Queen’s University Belfast  and currently serves as General Editor of the Irish Journal of Anthropology.
