The history of relations between Britain and Ireland has at times emphasized borders more than crossings. That history has sometimes been preoccupied with notions of identity as defined by family, province, or nation rather than identity that is dynamic and still emerging. Published in conjunction with the exhibition Nobility and Newcomers in Renaissance Ireland, the catalog challenges us to think differently about cultural and political exchange between Ireland and Britain in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
