Synopsis

Identity Parades Northern Irish Culture and Dissident Subjects by Richard Kirkland

Identity Parades investigates the role and importance of identity politics in modern Northern Irish society. Through a discussion of the kinds of texts that are often overlooked in analyses of culture in the North such as film, biography, popular fiction and travel writing the book charts the rise of identity as an increasingly popular way of defining individual and communal affiliation and considers its importance within Northern Irish political discourse as a whole. In this, Identity Parades identifies not only the possibilities but also the limits of identitarian thinking and describes the ways in which identity positions in the North can become troubled, fossilised and self-parodic.
