This talk is based on new research relating to the Irish border. It draws upon testimonies and submissions to the 1920s Boundary Commission to test out some of Rogers Brubaker's theoretical approaches to identity formation, most especially from his book Ethnicity without Groups.

Tim McMahon is associate professor of history at Marquette University. He is a social historian whose research looks at national identity, imperialism, and popular culture in modern Ireland and Britain. He is the President of the American Conference for Irish Studies.
