Founded in 1981, the Irish Studies series was the first of its kind in North America. Monographs on writers such as W. B. Yeats, James Joyce, Liam O’Flaherty, Seamus Heaney and Roddy Doyle have distinguished Syracuse University Press as a leader in the field. The series is committed to publishing groundbreaking work in areas as wide-ranging as the performing arts, Irish America, religion, language, literary studies, and women’s studies. The press is proud to be the exclusive distributor of the prestigious Irish publisher, Arlen House.
