Rate this:
This book traces a number of common themes relating to the representation of Irish Travellers in Irish popular tradition and how these themes have impacted on Ireland?s collective imagination. A particular focus of the book is on the exploration of the Traveller as?Other?, an ""Other"" who is perceived as both inside and outside Ireland?s collective ideation. Frequently constructed as a group whose cultural tenets are in a dichotomous opposition to that of the?settled? community, this book demonstrates the ambivalence and complexity of the Irish Traveller ‘Other’ in the context of a European postcolonial country.
