New article

The article “Death in the Family: Reimagining the Irish Family in Famine Fiction, 1871-1912,” which I co-wrote with Lindsay Janssen, has just appeared in the collection New Voices, Inherited Lines: Literary and Cultural Representations of the Irish Family, edited by Yvonne O’Keeffe and Claudia Reese and published by Peter Lang as volume 47 in their Reimagining Ireland series. The article looks at representations of family structures in “Ireland’s” Forlorn but not Forsaken; Hester Sigerson’s A Ruined Race; Joseph Guinan’s The Moores of Glynn; and “Slieve Foy’s” “Attie and His Father.”
