Speaking of Ireland
Colin Graham

discussion of the strategies of writing about Ireland in relation to the critical ‘self’ which becomes implicated in that ‘Ireland’. I examine the role which the ‘warmer memory’ of ‘the people’ crucially undertakes in the processes of a criticism which takes to itself or asserts identity politics, and discuss the ‘organic’ necessities of Norquay_03_Ch2 32 22/3/02, 9:46 am 33 Speaking of Ireland the intellectual as they are reacted against and reconstructed in Joyce’s Stephen Dedalus.

However, in this book we want to follow up on Butler’s call for understanding vulnerability as restraint as well as responsiveness, a concept rife with paradoxes, but also potential. Furthermore, we want to stress vulnerability

Indeed, the very recentness of the emergence of this writing makes any Beur female identity  endeavour to characterise its expression of identity politics tentative. Given the diversity of the writers who are conventionally grouped under the umbrella term beur – some writers classed as beur were born in North Africa then came to France, others were born in France of, say, a French mother and Algerian father

We also want, therefore, to examine the possible intersections between geopolitical markers of supposed ‘marginality’ and other boundaries and hierarchies operating in identity politics – gender, ethnicity, class and sexuality in particular. In this arena we believe that insufficient attention had been placed to the relationship between ‘Celtic spaces’ and other areas of ‘difference’, even within the context of emerging concerns around a ‘New Britishness’: As Robert Crawford notes in the afterword to his influential Devolving
