This volume of essays explore some of the diverse ways that W.T. Stead's complicated revolution in British newspapers and print journalism (the New Journalism) influenced Irish politics, culture, and newspaper practices. Irish journalism often reflected distinctively national or local concerns. Yet, its editors, innovations, preoccupations, and technologies benefited from increasingly transnational networks that were less constrained by or concerned with national, geographical, or even linguistic borders. Individually and collectively, these essays demonstrate some of the ways in which the new journalistic technologies and strategies of this era transformed the roles of editors and journalists in Ireland. The most comprehensive examination of the New Journalism and Ireland to date, this volume also further illuminates the central role of the press in the evolution of Irish nationalism and Irish modernism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

"Showcasing the emergence of new media practices from the pre-revival period to the development of modernism, this thematically-divided collection presents a new understanding of a cultural and political 'revolution' on a wide range of media platforms. A pioneering work in the study of Irish journalism, it highlights the diversity of reportage and review while underpinning the links created by nineteenth-century innovations in technology, particularly those that gave rise to new forms of mass communication. This timely study of a new dawn in Irish journalism is valuable in assessing the role of the press; it also provides valuable insights on the role of journalism and the journalist for media practitioners and scholars in the twenty-first century." - Regina Ui Chollatain, Senior Lecturer of Irish, Celtic Studies, Irish Folklore and Linguistics, University College Dublin, Ireland
