Shedding light on the connection between Irish writers and The New Yorker
The New Yorker (TNY) was a magnet for Irish writers as they actively contributed to the American publication in the mid-20th century, helping establish themselves in the United States and abroad. The EU-funded IWandTNYinMID20thC project seeks to uncover the writers’ connection to the TNY’s post-war liberalism and how much this connection redefined Ireland’s isolated literary environment with respect to global modernity. It will leverage periodical studies and theories of middlebrow culture to develop a theoretical framework. IWandTNYinMID20thC claims that Irish writers connected with TNY because they all had doubts about modernity. The findings will provide the first-ever contextualised literary, biographical account of the connection between TNY and Irish and American writers.
