“Corporaal’s focus on the surprisingly extensive literature produced in the two decades after the Famine shatters many settled assumptions about Irish cultural amnesia, while her study of the transformations of memory across space and time establish crucial new approaches to cultural transmissions and interactions. This is one of those rare books that profoundly change their fields and our understanding of our history.”

—David Lloyd, department of English, University of California, Riverside

“After reading Relocated Memories, it is no longer possible to think about the Irish Famine purely in an Irish context. With this book, Marguérite Corporaal has expanded the map of the field.”

—Chris Morash, Seamus Heaney Professor of Irish Writing, Trinity College Dublin

“This is one of the most important contributions to Famine studies in recent years.”

—Melissa Fegan, author of Literature and the Irish Famine, 1845–1919
