Description

This is the first book on Ireland to provide a sustained and interdisciplinary analysis of gender, sexuality, nationalism, the public and private spheres, and the relationship between these categories of analysis and action. Kathryn Conrad exposes the assumptions and effects of national discourses in Ireland and their reliance on a limited and limiting vision of the family: the heterosexual family cell.
