The collection also unsettles the boundaries and definitions of nation by exploring colonial, post-colonial, and globalized manifestations of Ireland as country and state as well as the human animal and non-human animal migrations that challenge a variety of literal and cultural borders. In essays addressing a range of Irish cultural production, contributors consider the impacts of conceptual categories of nature, animality, and humanness on actual human and animal lives.

Emerging in the era of the sixth mass extinction, brought on by human-induced climate change and habitat destruction, this volume aims to make a contribution to eco-critical thought and practice in Irish Studies and beyond.
