What Rough Beasts presents an innovative and diverse collection of new research papers which investigate key literary and historical issues in Irish and Scottish Studies, providing a view onto the range of current research interests both within and across the two disciplines. From a selection of papers presented at an AHRC-sponsored conference held at the University of Aberdeen, the volume showcases original material by both emergent and established scholars. Opening up illuminating conversations between often diverse areas of study, this book covers issues including: poetry and violence; film and drama; history and historiography; ethnography and literature; the politics of representation.
