This volume of essays explore some of the diverse ways that W.T. Stead's complicated revolution in British newspapers and print journalism (the New Journalism) influenced Irish politics, culture, and newspaper practices. Irish journalism often reflected distinctively national or local concerns. Yet, its editors, innovations, preoccupations, and technologies benefited from increasingly transnational networks that were less constrained by or concerned with national, geographical, or even linguistic borders. Individually and collectively, these essays demonstrate some of the ways in which the new journalistic technologies and strategies of this era transformed the roles of editors and journalists in Ireland. The most comprehensive examination of the New Journalism and Ireland to date, this volume also further illuminates the central role of the press in the evolution of Irish nationalism and Irish modernism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
