About this product
- DescriptionIn the space of a few short decades, Ireland has become one of the most globalised societies in the Western world. The full ramifications of this transformation for traditional Irish communities, religious practice, ecomic activity, as well as literature and the arts, are as yet unkwn. What is kwn is that Ireland's largely unthinking embrace of globalisation has at times had negative consequences. Unlike some other European countries, Ireland has eagerly and sometimes recklessly grasped the opportunities for material advancement afforded by the global project. This collection of essays, largely the fruit of two workshops organised under the auspices of the Humanities Institute of Ireland at University College Dublin and the National Centre for Franco-Irish Studies in the Institute of Techlogy, Tallaght, explores how globalisation has taken such a firm hold on Irish society and provides a cultural perspective on the phemen. The book is divided into two sections. The first examines various manifestations of globalisation in Irish society whereas the second focuses on literary representations of globalisation. The contributors, ackwledged experts in the areas of cultural theory, religion, sociology and literature, offer a paply of viewpoints of Ireland's interaction with globalisation.
