Dr Pierse has focussed on the neglected area of class in Irish Studies. His Writing Ireland’s Working Class (2011) focussed on the writing of working-class life in Dublin. His recent edited collection, A History of Irish Working-Class Writing (2017), has expanded on that research.
Pierse is also co-editor of Rethinking the Irish Diaspora: After the Gathering (February 2018), which expands his work on diaspora writers. He is also more generally interested in cultural production in contexts of marginalisation and disenfranchisement.
