Joyce and Militarism

Greg Winston

University Press of Florida

This chapter considers the connection between militarism and athleticism by tracing the rise of school sports as a training ground for soldiering in both colonial and anti-colonial contexts. The so-called garrison games of British public-school origin and the native Irish sports of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) alike impressed on young practitioners distinct political perspectives and cultural values. Joyce's references to football, hurling, boxing, and other sports point to the politics of masculine and national identity at stake in the process of militarization.
