Yet the categories of Irish culture and Irishness are highly performative, effected through a wide range of social practices, cultural formations, discursive utterances, and in timely need of critical address. As social and political change continue to have enormous effects on Ireland and its diaspora, it has become more important than ever to engage with performances in and of Irish culture.This new paperback edition of Crossroads: Performance Studies and Irish Culture examines Irish culture through some of the paradigms and vocabularies offered by performance studies.

As the title of the book makes clear, Brady and Walsh return to the evocative metaphor of crossroads to signal the intersection of disciplines. The roads mapped here are metaphorical and real, multiple and mobile. Practices, epistemologies, temporalities, geographies, and identities splinter in their wake, clearing the ground for the emergence of nuanced understandings of performance and cultural politics.
