The image of Georgian Dublin, the one packaged for tourists, is a city of fine squares, wide sweeping streets and brightly painted doorways set with delicate fanlights. However, this Georgian character, frequently assumed to be the most robust remnant of a divided and disputed past, is often merely facade. Seeking to redefine Georgian Dublin, this interdisciplinary collection of essays explores the less obvious remnants of the Georgian era to suggest areas of research where the Pale has not yet been breached.
