Description: From the earliest days of Irish tourism, vacationers have consistently come back from Ireland with a remark along the lines of. “I felt like I was home even though I’d never been there.” (No less a figure than President John F Kennedy said this after his famous 1962 “roots trip” to County Wexford!) But how can this be? What’s going on, when someone makes such a claim? This far-ranging talk looks at a variety of books and other texts that make a statement in this vein, and explores a range of possible explanations for why this almost-mystical response is so common.
