"Jessica Scarlata’s Rethinking Occupied Ireland puts the body back into the Irish body politic, reconnecting discourses of gender and nation, private and public spheres, often partitioned in contemporary debates on Irish film and visual culture. Sharing James Joyce’s belief that Ireland fretted in the shadow of two empires, Scarlata examines how the carceral regimes of British rule in Northern Ireland, and the Catholic Church in the Irish state, encased bodies as well as minds in a permanent state of emergency. Written with considerable verve and acumen, this wide-ranging study makes an incisive contribution to film theory and history, gender studies, postcolonialism and Irish Studies"—Luke Gibbons, coauthor of Cinema and Ireland
