Disciplinary approaches to understanding NI’s Conflict and Peace

May 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


The Routledge Handbook of the Northern Irish Conflict and Peace is the first multi-authored volume to specifically address the thirty-year Northern Ireland conflict, colloquially known as ‘the Troubles,’ and its subsequent peace process. This volume aimed to open up space to address controversial subjects, answer key questions, and move beyond reductive analysis that reproduce simplistic, binary interpretations. The volume forefronts creative approaches and allows for analysis and reflection on conflict and peace to pre-date the conflict and continue through to present day. With an extensive introduction, preface and 45 individual chapters, this volume represents an ambitious, expansive, interdisciplinary engagement with the North of Ireland through society, conflict and peace from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, theoretical frameworks, and methodological approaches. While continuing a rich tradition of historical explorations of high-level politics rooted in state documents and archives, this volume also allows for the intermingling of a variety of sources, including personal papers, memory, space, material culture and lived experience, in understanding the complexities of both Northern Ireland as a people, place and political entity.
