(p.3) Introduction
Rethinking the Irish in the American South

Bryan Albin Giemza

University Press of Mississippi

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the main themes covered in the book, which aims to apply interdisciplinary perspectives to re-examine the Irish in the South, calling into question received ways of understanding how Irish culture was transmitted into the South. Rather than seeing the Irish presence as “natural,” or a historic fait accompli, the following chapters see the presence as something historicized and unstable. Taken collectively, they offer a new framework for interpreting the Irish presence in the region.

Keywords:   American South, Irish culture, southern culture
