Subject Highlights


The purpose of this chapter is to highlight some of the recent developments in the study of Victorian Irish migrations to attempt to answer the question – what was distinctive about Irish migrations within the wider context of British and European migrations? In the light of contemporary historical writings, the exceptionality of Irish migrant destinies seems to have diminished in significance, and the reasons for it have to be seriously examined. Accordingly, this chapter first examines the general trends in Irish Victorian migrations, and then focuses on Irish women, Irish Protestants and the varying forms of Irish identities abroad.
