Leerssen (ed.): Parnell and His Times

Former member of the ICLA Theory Committee, Joep Leerssen, has edited Parnell and His Times, a collection of essays on the Irish national leader Charles Stewart Parnell (1846–1891). The contributors reassess Parnell’s impact on the Ireland of his time, its cultural, religious, political, and intellectual life, in order to trace his posthumous influence into the early twentieth century in fields such as political activism, memory culture, history-writing, and literature.
