From an analysis of the Guinness brand s reflection of Irish identity
to an exploration of murals and film portrayals of political prisoners,
this pioneering collection of essays seeks to present Ireland s
relationship to visual culture as a whole. While other works have
explored the imagistic history of Ireland, most have restricted their
lens to a single form of visual representation. Ireland in Focus is
the first book to address the diverse range of visual representations
of national and communal identity in Ireland.
The contributors examine the politics of visual representation
from both historical and contemporary perspectives. Drawing from
the areas of cultural theory, postcolonial studies, art criticism,
documentary and archival history, and gender studies, the essays
provide novel insights on a variety of visual-cultural forms, including
film, theater, photography, landscape art, political murals, and
the visual iconography of commercial marketing. Bringing together
established scholars and emerging young critics in the field, Ireland
in Focus breaks new ground in showcasing the essential dynamism
of visual culture and its relationship to Irish studies."
