The new Routledge International Handbook of Irish Studies (Routledge, 2020) explores how Ireland and, by extension, the scholarly approaches to understanding Ireland have been transformed since the global financial crisis of 2008. The volume was edited by BC Ireland Academic Director Mike Cronin, Renée Fox (University of California, Santa Cruz), and Brian Ó Conchubhair (University of Notre Dame). Chapters in the Routledge International Handbook of Irish Studies reflect the myriad ways the discipline of Irish Studies has responded to the economic precarity in the Republic, renewed instability in the North, the complex European politics of Brexit, global climate and pandemic crises, and the intense social change in Ireland. Cronin is also a contributor to the volume along with BC Professor of History Oliver Rafferty, S.J. and alumna Kate Costello-Sullivan.
