About the Author

Mairead Nic Craith is Professor and Chair in Cultural Heritage and Anthropological Studies and Director of the Intercultural Centre at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.


"Mairead Nic Craith shows great sensitivity towards her field. She manages to go well beyond a traditionalist or nostalgic interpretation of Tomas's memoir. She eventually shows that different sort of nostalgias are expressed in memoirs, at the intersection between a more local perspective and more external visions." (Laurent Sebastien Fournier, Anthropological Journal of European Cultures, Vol. 30 (1), 2021)
