Consuming St. Patricks Day

There is probably no national day that has such global popularity as St. Patricks Day. On St. Patricks Day, it is reputed that Everyone is Irish. What are the factors and factions that give the day such popular appeal? Is St. Patricks Day the same around the world in Japan, Northern Ireland and Montserrat as it is in the Republic of Ireland and the United States? Just how does Irishness figure in the celebration and commemoration of St. Patricks Day, and how has this day been commoditized, consumed and contested? Does St. Patricks Day belong to the people, the nation or the brewery? This edited volume brings together the best St. Patricks Day and Irish Studies scholars from the fields of history, anthropology, sociology, Irish studies, diaspora studies, and cultural studies. The volume thematically explores how St. Patricks Day has been consumed from the symbolic to the literal, the religious to the political. By doing so, it offers a fresh examination of its importance in contemporary society. This volume will thus appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students of Irish diaspora studies, and Irish historians and scholars, as well as to anthropology, sociology and cultural studies students interested in exploring St. Patricks Day as a case study of globalization, migration and commoditization.
