Locked in the Family Cell
Gender, Sexuality, and Political Agency in Irish National Discourse
Irish Studies in Literature and Culture
Michael Patrick Gillespie, Series Editor
"[Conrad] most convincingly answers the question of why gender and sexuality matter in political discourse."Nancy Curtin, author of The United Irishmen
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.
Kathryn Conrad is associate professor of English at the University of Kansas. This is her first book.
