BREAC: A Digital Journal of Irish Studies

A peer-reviewed, paperless, academic journal, Breac begins with Irish Studies and looks outward. It pairs the work of accomplished and emerging scholars in short, focused issues with the hope of cultivating international discussions in a digital forum. Each year we will publish two issues, supplemented with additional interviews and reviews. The online journal will utilize its medium and include pictures and clips, sound-bites and shorts. The goal is to create a new space for conversation that pairs the accessibility of a digital medium with the commitment to cultural, linguistic, disciplinary, and historic diversity. Perhaps, then, we can wade cautiously into the broken, uncertain breacsholas.
