Making Peace with the Past?

Memory, trauma and the Irish troubles

Graham Dawson

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Looks at the Irish Troubles and how memory and trauma are being used in the process of reconciliation
  • Trauma studies is a relatively new discipline and is applied here to both 'sides' in the conflict
  • Dawson investigates how personal, empirical experience has influenced the narratives and ideologies of the public pronouncements over the last thirty-five or so years
  • Focuses on two specific instances - the targeting of Protestants by the IRA and the violence perpetrated on what has become known as Bloody Sunday
