Ireland and the New Journalism
Co-edited by Karen Steele, Department Chair and Professor of English
This volume of essays explores W.T. Stead’s influence on Irish nationalism and modernism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Stead was an English journalist whose work helped spark a revolution in British newspapers and print journalism called the “New Journalism.” The collection analyzes the central role the press played during this era and the lasting effect journalism had on Irish politics, culture and newspaper practices.
