The question of locating Roger Casement, both his Ufe and works, introduces a need to contextualise his representation and reputation in terms of the Irish nation-state, but also concerns the location of Casement the body — the icality of his representation, reputation and reception. Such a view incorporates a sense of his hybrid personal identity, his execution, and most significantly, the manner of his memorialisation through the physicality of repatriation, burial and the theatre and ceremonies of state. A perpetual sense of uncertahity of location hovers around Casement, especially since his xecution in 1916, an uncertainty which is symptomatic in many ways of the problems arising from any application of postcolonial studies to the Irish situation.
