Descrizione articolo


"Sullivan is among those emerging feminist cultural critics who are breaking a critical silence: her study of fiction, films and plays by Northern Irish women not only charts new territory in Irish studies, it also provides a model for doing Irish cultural criticism."--Katherine Kirkpatrick, editor of Border Crossings: Irish Women Writers and National Identity

In this examination of the cultural production of critically acclaimed women novelists, filmmakers, nonfiction writers and dramatists in Northern Ireland, Megan Sullivan insists that their work demonstrates that the Irish political struggle takes place in the material conditions of women’s lives--in the home, within the family, and on the street.

 While writers about Northern Ireland traditionally discuss public events, Sullivan argues that no permanent solution to the troubles will be possible until the public deals with such issues as housing, poverty, unemployment, and domestic violence. Because the plight of Northern Irish prisoners has been an important component of the peace process, she uses prison as a metaphor and as a point of departure to discuss patriarchy in general. 

 Incorporating material that has been difficult to access for most North American readers, and focusing on issues that have only recently been studied, Women in Northern Ireland maps a new direction for the intersection of Irish studies and cultural studies.

Megan Sullivan, assistant professor of humanities and rhetoric at Boston University, has published articles in Eire Ireland, New Hibernia Review, Irish Literary Supplement, and Irish Review.
