This is not an exhaustive secondary source bibliography for the history of the Irish diaspora. There are many ways that it could have been organised – by theme, time period, or geography, for example – but as this network seeks to encourage new connections, it was felt that publication chronology was the most conducive way of achieving this. In doing so it provides insight into the variety of work being carried out, and may be of use to students and researchers to consider themes and trends in the historiography of the Irish diaspora. If you see mistakes, absences, or have any forthcoming work that you would like included, please get in touch with us (

For primary source recommendations, you might want to have a look at the Irish Emigration Database.

This list was compiled by Sophie Cooper & Nicola Cousen, July 2018.
