- Morales Ladrón, Marisol and Juan Francisco Elices Agudo, eds. Glocal Ireland: Current Perspectives on Literature and the Visual Arts. Newcastle: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2011. ISBN: 978-1-4438-2979-3.
In the context of present-day Ireland, the editors of this collection of papers argue that the global and the local should be understood not as opposed concepts but as two ends of a continuum of interaction. This volumen comprises a series of articles that revolve around the issue of glocality in Irish literature, culture and cinema in order to disentangle the complexities that underlie this concept and which are inextricably related to the drastic changes undertaken by Ireland in the years before and after the economic bloom and posterior bailout.
