Abstract

The introduction surveys theoretical and historiographical approaches to Ireland’s relationship to the British Empire, noting questions generated by earlier scholarship, and proposing a renewed engagement with the topic that avoids the dangers of polarised debate. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the editors emphasise instead, particularities, nuances and complexities to the relationship. The volume is organised around discussions of habitation, representation, resistance/collusion, and networking, among other related aspects of the Irish involvement in the empire.
