Product Overview

Notions of diaspora are central to contemporary debates about ''race'', ethnicity, identity and nationalism. Yet the Irish diaspora, one of the oldest and largest, is often excluded on the grounds of ''whiteness''. Outsiders Inside explores the themes of displacement and the meanings of home for these women and their descendants. Juxtaposing the visibility of Irish women in the United States with their marginalization in Britain, Bronwen Walter challenges linear notions of migration and assimilation by demonstrating that two forms of identification can be held simultaneously. In an age when the Northern Ireland peace process is rapidly changing global perceptions of Irishness, Outsiders Inside moves the empirical study of the Irish diaspora out of the ''ghetto'' of Irish Studies and into the mainstream, challenging theorists and policy-makers to pay attention to the issue of white diversity.

Editors Note Bronwen Walter examines aspects of the colonial experience by comparing the very different outcomes of Irish women's emigration to and settlement within Britain and the United States. The author has carried out extensive research with first and second generation Irish women to explore issues of racialised boundaries, settlement, working and sense of identity.Outsiders Inside links cultural constructs of gendered ethnicity and racism to the material conditions of everyday life.
