The political geography of anti-Traveller racism in Ireland : the politics of exclusion and the geography of closure

Auteur :
MACLAUGHLIN, J.

Description :
The paper places anti-Traveller and anti-Gypsy racism within a wider discourse on progress and development. It was accentuated by the growth of nationalism and emergence of Social Darwinism. The A. focuses on the Irish travellers and looks at their changing relationships with national society from the colonial period to the present day. New strategies of social closure have emerged which are pushing travellers to the urban fringes of Irish society.
