When “Big Men” don’t see eye-to-eye: consequences for natives and tourists on Montserrat

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Traditionally, when North American tourists arrive to celebrate St. Patrick's Day on Montserrat, they find an island bedecked in shamrock green colors. Traces of Irishry appear in various symbols and are deployed about the island; these include Irish names, Irish music, and even Irish patois, generally known as "the brogue."
