My research interests are focused on Irish and English Studies, Discourse Analysis, representations of the Professional Author, and Rhetorics of Emancipation. I am currently working on civil rights and strategies of emancipation developed and used in Ireland in 1783 to 1922, in the period when the Irish used military, political, and cultural activism to radically shift their relationship with their immediate neighbors in the British Isles. The project uses newspapers, journals, and magazines from the O'Hegarty Collection at KU to illustrate how popular narratives of Ireland and Irishness were developed and disseminated, specifically in Dublin, suggesting that James Joyce's *Ulysses* gathers these narratives into a complex representation of how the people who experienced the Easter Rising in 1916 understood their various intersecting identities (based on assumptions about, and experiences of, gender, nationality, economic class, religion, and sexuality).
