Interesting inteview with Margaret Ward co-author of Irish Women and Nationalism: Soldiers, New Women and Wicked Hag. She gives Slugger a mention, but wonders whether there is a deep gender divide in the readership of the site, considering the apparent dominance of male contributors. It’s a subject that Jo’s been thinking through over on her own recently established blog.
Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
