In the unsettled political and social context of nineteenth-century Ireland the land provides a space for negotiation - of identity, of nationality, of ownership. The changing landscape over time provides a link between past and present, between real and imagined communities. This collection, published in association with the Society for the Study of Nineteenth-Century Ireland, recognizes the centrality of land to the discourse on nineteenth-century Ireland. It explores the human interaction with land, focuses on perception and memory and on the symbolism of land and landscape.
