Periodicals have been at the core of journalistic activity since before the foundation of the state, but have remained an area long neglected within media history. This book examines the origins, contribution, and impact of the major news periodicals of 20th-century Ireland. The chapters survey the proprietors, editors, contributors, journalism, controversies, and, in most cases, the demise of the most influential news journals of the period. They also evaluate the periodicals' long-term contributions to Irish journalism, society, and culture. The publications covered include: An Claidheamh Soluis * Irish Citizen * Hot Press * The Leader * Irish Worker * Irish Bulletin * The Irish Statesman * Dublin Opinion * The Bell * The Furrow * Hibernia * Magill * Scissors & Paste * Fortnight.

The Fourth Estate

Journalism in Twentieth-Century Ireland

This book examines the history of journalists and journalism in twentieth-century Ireland. While many media institutions have been subjected to historical scrutiny, the professional and organisational development of journalists, the changing practices of journalism, and the contribution of journalists and journalism to the evolution of modern Ireland have not. This book rectifies the deficit by mapping the development of journalism in Ireland from the late 1880s to today. Placing the experiences of journalists and the practice of journalism at the heart of its analysis, it examines, for the first time, the work of journalists within the ever-changing context of Irish society. Based on strong primary research - including the previously un-consulted journals and records produced by the many journalistic representative organisations that came and went over the decades - and written in an accessible and engaging style, The Fourth Estate will appeal to anyone interested in journalism, history, the media and the development of Ireland as a modern nation.

Informers in 20th Century Ireland

The Costs of Betrayal

Informers have been active during many periods of unrest in Ireland but, until Tudor times, they had never been an organized phenomenon until the twentieth century. The decision (or refusal) to inform is dangerous--thus the motives of the informers are compelling, as is their ability to deceive themselves. Drawing on firsthand and newspaper accounts of the Easter Rising and other events, this book provides a history of the gradual development of informing in Ireland. Each informer's story details their life and secrets and the outcome of their actions. All of them have shared two experiences: the accusation of informing, whether true or false, and betrayal, whether committed or endured.

Terrorismus und Freiheitskampf

Gewalt, Propaganda und politische Strategie im Irischen Bürgerkrieg 1922/23

Author: Nikolaus Braun

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 3486707477

Category: History

Page: 598

Anders als die bisher überwiegend an militärischen Fakten interessierte Forschung verfolgt Nikolaus Braun einen primär legitimatorischen Konflikt, einen politischen Glaubenskrieg, in dem die symbolische Ebene genauso entscheidend war wie militärische Realitäten. Die Untersuchung geht dabei weit über eine herkömmliche Geschichte von Propaganda und Presse hinaus: Nicht nur Fahnen, Lieder, Briefmarken, Uniformen etc. gerieten zu Trägern nationaler Propaganda, ebenso wurden Beerdigungen, Hungerstreiks, Exekutionen, aber auch die gesamte Außenpolitik und weite Teile der Kriegführung regelrecht inszeniert. Braun verfolgt, wie sich Denk- und Handlungsmöglichkeiten gegenseitig antrieben, bedingten und blockierten, und macht damit die innere Logik eines scheinbar irrationalen Konflikts sichtbar.

Perceptions of the Press in Nineteenth-Century British Periodicals

A Bibliography

This annotated bibliography of nineteenth-century British periodicals, complete with a detailed subject index, reveals how Victorian commentaries on journalism shaped the discourse on the origins and contemporary character of the domestic, imperial and foreign press. Drawn from a wide range of publications representing diverse political, economic, religious, social and literary views, this book contains over 4,500 entries, and features extracts from over forty nineteenth-century periodicals. The articles cataloged offer a thorough and influential analysis of their journalistic milieu, presenting statistics on sales and descriptions of advertising, passing judgment on space allocations, pinpointing different readerships, and identifying individuals who engaged with the press either exclusively or occasionally. Most importantly, the bibliography demonstrates that columnists routinely articulated ideas about the purpose of the press, yet rarely recognized the illogic of prioritizing public good and private profit simultaneously, thus highlighting implicitly a universal characteristic of journalism: its fractious, ambiguous, conflicting behavior.

Bulmer Hobson and the nationalist movement in twentieth-century Ireland

Author: Marnie Hay

Bulmer Hobson (1883-1969) abandoned the pacifism of his Ulster Quaker roots to become a key leader in the Irish nationalist movement in the period leading up to the 1916 Easter Rising. Sidelined at a critical time and maligned by some republican colleagues, Hobson has not been the subject of a published study until now. This book outlines and assesses Hobson’s nationalist career in the period 1900-16, exploring his contributions to the Gaelic League, the Gaelic Athletic Association, the Sinn Féin movement, Na Fianna Éireann and the Irish Volunteers. It also examines his lesser-known activities as a publisher, civil servant and economic propagandist in the years after the Rising. As the only study on Bulmer Hobson this book will be of interest to historians and political scientists specializing in twentieth-century Ireland and the Irish revolution, Irish Studies scholars, and students of these disciplines. It will also appeal to the general reader with an interest in the history of the Irish revolution.

"Wo drei Flüsse sich kreuzen" von Bestseller-Autorin Hannah Kent ist ein mitreißendes Drama um die Macht von Angst und Aberglaube - basierend auf einer wahren Geschichte aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Irland 1825: Die 14-jährige Mary soll der verwitweten Bäuerin Nora mit deren schwer behindertem Enkel Michael zur Hand gehen. Der kleine Junge, so munkelt man im Dorf, sei ein Wechselbalg, ein Feenkind, und mache die Kühe krank. Mary gibt nichts auf das Gerede, doch als Nora davon hört, reift in der einsamen, verzweifelten Frau eine ungeheuerliche Idee: Wenn es ihr gelingt, den Wechselbalg zu vertreiben, würde sie den gesunden Michael wiederbekommen und endlich wieder eine echte Familie haben. Getrieben von Angst und Aberglaube und unterstützt durch die geheimnisvolle Kräuterfrau Nance ist sie bald bereit, alles zu versuchen – und Mary fällt es immer schwerer, sich gegen die beiden Frauen durchzusetzen. Hannah Kent gelingt es durch ihre kristallklare Sprache erneut, eine grausame und wahre Geschichte eindringlich zu erzählen; die raue Schönheit Irlands verschmilzt mit dem Seelenleben ihrer Figuren, die dem Leser, wie schon in ihrem Debüt-Roman "Das Seelenhaus", ganz nahe kommen.

The History of the Irish Newspaper 1685-1760

Dr Munter studies the growth and changing nature of the Irish periodical press from the time of the Protestant Ascendancy under William III to 1760, when provincial papers began to flourish outside Dublin. This was the period when newspapers were produced very largely in Dublin, mostly for local circulation among the English-speaking Protestant upper class. Dr Munter first sets the production of newspapers within the general history of Irish printing and bookselling, and the organisation of the trade. He then examines particular aspects of Irish newspaper history, presenting evidence about the importation of paper and the growth of local manufacture; the development of advertising and its importance as an element in the financial structure of the newspaper; evidence of the profitability of newspapers; circulation figures; the effect of the communications system on the supply and dissemination of news; the status of journalists and the development of the journalistic ethic; and analysis of the contents of the papers.

Concord in Neuengland, Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts: ein Eldorado für Freidenker. Schriftsteller um Henry David Thoreau schreiben dort ihre wichtigsten Werke und revolutionieren neben der amerikanischen Literatur auch den amerikanischen Lebensstil: ungezwungen, kreativ und naturverbunden. Durch ein Erbe frühzeitig an Geld gelangt, lädt Ralph Waldo Emerson von ihm bewunderte Schriftsteller nach Concord. Was hier entsteht, wird nicht nur die Bewohner der Kleinstadt, sondern die Geschichte der amerikanischen Kultur in Aufruhr bringen. Die Transzendentalisten, wie die Gruppierung um Henry David Thoreau genannt wird, brechen mit allen Anstandsregeln: Nathaniel Hawthorne und Ralph Waldo Emerson verlieben sich gleichzeitig in die exzentrische Margaret Fuller, Louisa May Alcott schwärmt für ihren viel älteren Lehrer Thoreau, sie diskutieren, lesen sich gegenseitig Manuskripte vor, ernähren sich vegetarisch, ersinnen feministische Ideen und unternehmen Streifzüge durch die Wälder Neuenglands. American Bloomsbury ist das faszinierende Zeugnis dieser amourösen und intellektuellen Begegnungen. Es ist die Geschichte von Idealisten, die ihrer Zeit weit voraus waren.

Professor Schneller discusses Anna's journalism in Ireland, Britain and the United States and shows the development of her feminism and nationalism at the time of her brothers imprisonment in Kilmainham Prison. The wider context of her writing and the emergence of a genuine women's voice in Irish party politics is also illuminated.
