“Heritage Lost Or Found? Sociality and Fullness in the Irish Theme Pub”

We argue that sociality or fullness is a quintessential feature linked to Irish-heritage pubs. Evoking assemblage theory, we conceptualize Irish pubs as networks of material and narrative elements that vary in the fullness they foster. Analyzing five ethnographic field sites, we identify three types of elements that contribute to fullness.
