About this book

This volume explores the ways in which the complicated revolution in British newspapers, the New Journalism, influenced Irish politics, culture, and newspaper practices. The essays here further illuminate the central role of the press in the evolution of Irish nationalism and modernism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Reviews

"Showcasing the emergence of new media practices from the pre-revival period to the development of modernism, this thematically-divided collection presents a new understanding of a cultural and political 'revolution' on a wide range of media platforms. A pioneering work in the study of Irish journalism, it highlights the diversity of reportage and review while underpinning the links created by nineteenth-century innovations in technology, particularly those that gave rise to new forms of mass communication. This timely study of a new dawn in Irish journalism is valuable in assessing the role of the press; it also provides valuable insights on the role of journalism and the journalist for media practitioners and scholars in the twenty-first century." - Regina Uí Chollatáin, Senior Lecturer of Irish, Celtic Studies, Irish Folklore and Linguistics, University College Dublin, Ireland
