New Perspectives On The Irish In Scotland

by Martin J. Mitchell, New Perspectives On The Irish In Scotland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download New Perspectives On The Irish In Scotland books, With input from leading scholars on the subject, this collection analyzes the impact of Irish immigration on the social, economic, political, religious, and cultural life of Scotland. Providing new perspectives on themes such as the influence of the Protestant Irish on the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Catholic Irish involvement in the First World War, and the political activism of Irish immigrants, this well-researched volume reassesses the Irish immigrant experience and offers fresh insights into the development of modern Scotland. Informative and captivating, this reference demonstrates how some of Scotland's major institutions?including the Roman Catholic Church and the Glasgow Celtic Football Club?would have been insignificant, had they existed at all, if not for the Irish migration. The vital roles of the Irish in the success of the Scottish economy during the Industrial Revolution and in the creation of the trade union are also explored.

New Perspectives On Irish English

by Bettina Migge, New Perspectives On Irish English Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download New Perspectives On Irish English books, This volume brings together current research by international scholars on the varieties of English spoken in Ireland. The papers apply contemporary theoretical and methodological approaches and frameworks to a range of topics. A number of papers explore the distribution of linguistic features in Irish English, including the evolution of linguistic structures in Irish English and linguistic change in progress, employing broadly quantitative sociolinguistic approaches. Pragmatic features of Irish English are explored through corpus linguistics-based analysis. The construction of linguistic corpora using written and recorded material form the focus of other papers, extending and analyzing the growing range of corpus material available to researchers of varieties of English, including diaspora varieties. Issues of language and identity in contemporary Ireland are explored in several contributions using both qualitative and quantitative methods. The volume will be of interest to linguists generally, and to scholars with an interest in varieties of English.

Gaelic Games Nationalism And The Irish Diaspora In The United States

by Paul Darby, Gaelic Games Nationalism And The Irish Diaspora In The United States Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Gaelic Games Nationalism And The Irish Diaspora In The United States books, Full many years,'neath foreign skies, A stranger have I strayed, I've mingled in their sportive joys, And heard their music played; But still the dearest spot on earth - Which links me to its scene - For cheerful, hearty, guileless mirth, Is an Irish hurling-green. (The Gael, May 1887:705) Gaelic sports, played for over a century in the United States, provide a revealing window into the lives and culture of Irish communities there. It is well documented that Irish politicians, the Catholic Church and a whole host of social, political and benevolent organisations helped Irish immigrants acclimatise to and establish themselves in urban America. Far less has been said about the role of sport, let alone Gaelic games, in this process. Gaelic Games, Nationalism and the Irish Diaspora in the United States redresses this neglect by uncovering the origins and development of US branches of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and by accounting for their political, economic and social impact in Irish America. Paul Darby takes as case studies the cities of New York, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco, focal points of Irish Immigration and the main centres of GAA activity in America. He draws on detailed archival and ethnographic research carried out in each city and uses a selection of rare photographs to bring to life a remarkable story of cultural preservation, persistence and passion for Gaelic games.

The Irish American In Popular Culture 1945 2000

by Stephanie Rains, The Irish American In Popular Culture 1945 2000 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Irish American In Popular Culture 1945 2000 books, The main 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 later twentieth century. Organised thematically, the book provides a unique examination of a wide range of popular cultural forms and practices during the later twentieth century.
