Abstract

Transatlantic Dialogues: Sectarian Violence and Popular Performance in Nineteenth-Century Belfast examines how transatlantic circulations of performance negotiated the city’s intensifying sectarian conflict through its imagining of Ireland’s history and future. Occurring in one of the only public secular spaces in the city, these performances intervened in and created a potentially safe space for debates about Belfast’s present and future, as a city, part of Ireland, and commercial jewel in the British Empire. As industry boomed and migrants within and outside of Ireland helped make the city temporarily Ireland’s largest, popular performance provided an opportunity to imagine competing notions of Irishness. These performances reveal nuanced patterns of exchange and influence and demonstrate how the discourses surrounding emerging sectarian violence were embodied. Speaking to theatre, performance, religious, and Irish studies, this project suggests a rethinking of patterns of cultural exchange through transatlantic cultural circulation and offers a model for theatre's flexibility and response to crises.
