Abstract:

"The major theme of this book is the process by which late twentieth century Irish-America engages with Irishness, especially focusing upon the ways in which the diaspora relates to aspects of Ireland and Irish culture in the formation of their cultural identity. The book focuses upon popular culture and cultural practices relevant to this process of diasporic identity formation, such as film and television, genealogy research, cultural tourism, and material culture such as souvenirs and 'luxury' Irish products. There is also a consideration of the economic and political connections between Irish-America and Ireland during the late twentieth century.

Organised thematically, the book provides a unique examination of a wide range of popular cultural forms and practices in this period."--Jacket.
