About this book

This edited collection is the first to address the topic of adolescence in Irish history. It brings together established and emerging scholars to examine the experience of Irish young adults from the 'affective revolution' of the early nineteenth century to the emergence of the teenager in the 1960s.

Susannah Riordan is Lecturer in Modern Irish History at the School of History and Archives, University College Dublin, Ireland, an Associated Staff member of the Centre for the History of Medicine in Ireland, and the Secretary of the Irish Historical Society.

She is currently concluding a long-term project on the social and medical history of venereal disease in independent Ireland.

Reviews

“As the first academic study to address the topic of adolescence in Irish history, this volume is therefore a welcome addition to a developing field. … it remains a valuable publication and one that marks out a new area of historical enquiry.” (Virginia Crossman, Childhood in the Past, Vol. 10 (1), June, 2017)
