Summary
Masculinity and Irish Popular Culture is an interdisciplinary collection of essays by established and emerging scholars, analysing the shifting representations of Irish men across a range of popular culture forms in the period of the Celtic Tiger and beyond. From the self-stylings of GAA star Paul Galvin to theatrical depictions of an Irish masculinity in crisis, the essays firmly situate these diverse images of Irish manhood within the social and cultural contexts that produced them. Taking as its overall context the social changes instigated by the economic boom of the 1990s, the book traces the effects of these changes into popular understandings of what it is to be an Irish male. Through insightful analyses of film, theatre, literature and more, the essays in this collection argue that Irish masculinity has become a more heterogeneous concept within this period while critiquing the gender binaries that continue to structure Irish society and culture. --Provided by publisher
